This is Jingle Town, happy, jolly and full of fun, but Jingle Town has a new Mayor, and he is intent on stamping out all music, singing and fun from the town. His motto is work work and then more work! His evil, yet bumbling gremlins do his dirty work around the town, throwing into jail anyone singing or having a good time. He has arrested Santa Claus and now Jingle Town has lost its jingle.
The Jingle Town chimney sweeps are a boy called Jesse and a Bear called Dusty, can they save the town with the help of their new friend Rocky the Dragonfly and maybe you?
Jingle Town is heart warming live interactive show, full of excitement, action and adventure.
Children will get to meet Santa and some of the characters of the show individually afterwards and have their photo taken with their favourite hero!
Jingle Town is fun for all the family.

Bar. Cafe. Creative Space.... As promoters, music is our first love and putting on parties and events is our job. Musically, we cover a lot of bases. We have DJs and bands playing across the board from house to jazz to grime, roots reggae to disco, hip hop to rock.
Events-wise, on any given day you could walk into a back yard market, an exhibition launch, a marathon 10hr set from a Detroit DJ legend, a hot-tub party, fresh pizza on a double decker bus, an Italian breakfast, a live show from emerging Dublin bands, graffiti battles, sunshine sangrias in the yard, or even just a simple pint of plain and a chat.
We are an intimate venue catering to Harcourt Street's more discerning, mature customer.
Our baby grand piano plays host to some of the best live acts and bands in Dublin as well as DJs til late.

Every piece has a story...
OZRA Living specialises in handcrafted, designer ceramic homeware and jewellery made in Dublin, Ireland. Our ranges are inspired by the landscapes, nature and culture of Ireland and beyond - the mystical Irish coastline, a fallen coconut found on an exotic island, antique Rajasthani textile stamps, tropical fungi, mythical creatures and Pre-Columbian art.
Our designs combine rustic, earthy yet sleek and contemporary aesthetics. Every piece is timeless. We believe that objects alchemised from clay using such ancient methods should retain a natural quality - which is why we have chosen the medieval alchemy symbol for earth as our logo.
We wish to add an alternative selection to the mass produced homeware that surrounds us. In a world where globalisation has rendered everything homogeneous, the prospect of an affordable object with provenance and heritage, created by an actual person, using unique skills, is becoming increasingly desirable. Each piece is one of a kind, created by a multi award winning Irish artist and designer.
As seen on RTE, The Irish Times, the Irish Sun and Ceramics Now Magazine.
***LOST AND FOUND***
There is no contact number, you need to pop into the venue between 9.30-10.30pm any night of the week
