Prohibition: The Beautiful and the Damned – At IMMA


Wanna celebrate Halloween at a fancy and unique party? This Halloween, Prohibition: the Beautiful and the Damned at IMMA brings you the 1920s you know and love with a taste of the Underworld — a night of gothic glamour, strange curiosities, the bewitching and the bizarre.

Embrace the darker side of the Twenties at Ireland’s most elegantly decadent Halloween celebration. The juice-joints will be serving blood-red bathtub gin punch. The fiendish fan dancers and frightful flappers will haunt the stage for the Dance Macabre show.

Try their new Guys and Ghouls 1920s speed dating or dance for your soul to live ragtime and old-meets-new Twenties fusion, the Monster Mash, and vintage and electro-swing DJs.

In the Parlour room, Film Fatale in association with Bram Stoker Festival, will enthrall and excite with ghastly tales and gothic performances.

This is a vintage-themed event and strictly fancy-dress. They want you to flaunt your inner fiendish flapper or gangster, or pay homage to Twenties horror and silent movies. However you go, look frightfully good. This is, after all, a night of unspeakable glamour.

This will be a night to remember! I won’t miss it!

The Poetry Brothel — Gothic! – The Liquor Rooms


This is a very artistic and unique event! The Poetry Brothel phenomenon, in conjunction with the Bram Stoker Festival, shall descend upon the Liquor Rooms, to strike fear and inspiration into the hearts of mortals.

The Poetry Brothel is a nightclub where jazz musicians, burlesque dancers, body painters, magicians and tarot card readers mingle and perform, but poetry holds centre stage as the headline act. The poets are also available (for a fee) and will read you a poem, one-to-one. The event reminds us that poetry can be intimate, that poetry can be boisterous, that poetry can celebrate the night and the many passions encountered there.

So prepare to face your fears as this special event, already a “must” in New York, Paris, Barcelona, New Orleans, and Buenos Aires (among others), joins the Bram Stoker Festival. The creatures of the night await!
