From October 28th – 31st, Dublin City will celebrate 4 Days of Living Stories & 4 Nights of Deadly Adventures

Whether you’re a resident vampire or visiting from further afield, Bram Stoker Festival 2016 has something for everyone in its gothically inspired programme of events.

Bram Stoker Festival is brought to life by Dublin City Council and Fáilte Ireland and presented by Project Arts Centre.

 

Abraham ‘Bram’ Stoker was born on 8 November 1847 in Clontarf, Dublin and was educated at Trinity College from 1864-1870. His love of theatre led him to become the unpaid drama critic for the Dublin Evening Mail which was co-owned by the gothic writer Sheridan Le Fanu. In 1878 he married Florence Balcombe, former girlfriend of Oscar Wilde, in St. Ann’s Church in Dawson Street. He began writing novels while in London – the most famous of which is Dracula, published in 1897. The global importance of Stoker’s novel is just one of the many reasons Dublin is internationally recognised as a UNESCO City of Literature
