Open-air Christmas Movies
This December, you will have a chance to catch up on some of the great and much loved Christmas flicks kicking off on December 8th with the great musical love story Meet Me in St. Louis. Don’t miss Charles Dicken's joyous classic Scrooge on December 15th where miserly Ebenezer Scrooge learns the error of his ways and join in all the fun of the Muppet’s Christmas Carol!

Christmas Tunes
Temple Bar Properties are delighted to play host for the first time to DIT Conservatory of Music Concert Band and the DIT Traditional Group as they take to the open air spaces of Cow’s Lane and Temple Bar Square over two days in November celebrating the festive season through music. Our cultural neighbours are also offering you the opportunity this Christmas to visit their magnificent buildings and experience some fun culture! The Contemporary Music Centre will host an evening of Christmas carols performed by the Mornington Carols Singers in the hidden treasure that is Handel’s Courtyard in the west end of Temple Bar or visit the special Green Santa for one day only at the Cultivate Sustainable Living Centre!

So why not take some much needed time out this Christmas and immerse yourself in the FREE festive culture on offer in your Cultural Quarter!
