Something fun for all the family.

With Halloween only a couple of weeks away I think we’re all on the look out for fun Halloween themed events to take part in with the kids.

What better way to celebrate the spookiest time of the year is there than in checking out the Bram Stoker Festival 2020?

Bram Stoker Festival, one of Dublin’s biggest and most anticipated festivals, this year challenges Dubliners to invite Dracula into their home and enjoy the festival in a fangtastic new way.

The programme of events has been specially curated to offer thrills and chills at home, while Dublin’s streets will be illuminated for a special walking tour, which can be enjoyed by individuals at their leisure without fear of crowds.

From chilling audio theatre in your bed to creating Macnas puppets at home, the festival has plenty of deadly adventures to occupy little monsters and aged vampires over the midterm and Halloween Weekend.

One of the most popular family events at the Bram Stoker Festival every year is their Dracula’s Disco so parents will be delighted to know that there will be a social distance version this year.

Children will be able to enjoy Dracula’s Disco from their own home as it can be streamed online.

This fun-packed and energetic DJ set will be perfect for young zombies, ghosts and all music-loving monsters.

With so many Halloween events cancelled this year it’s great to see that the Bram Stoker Festival will still be going ahead to bring us lots of spooky fun this Halloween.
