Temple Bar Cultural stuff

Temple Bar isn't just about stag and hen parties. It puts on a lot of interesting stuff. Where do they get the funding? Why don't they ask me to participate? I do have a minor phobia of cobblestones though so I'm always a bit wary of the area. (True!)

They have movies in Meeting House Square every Saturday from July 4th to August 22nd. Free. You can get tickets at the cultural centre or by post.

and a Circus Festival 10-13th July - not just for kids. Lots of quirky acts. Free.

Also a Chocolate Festival - sounds yummy. July 25th to 27th.
I have a great poem with a chocolate theme. I'm willing to read, if only they'd ask!

Don't wait to be asked, darling, offer yourself to them!

Well, I'm not sure how to go about it? Email someone? Call someone? What do I say? I'm a poet. Let me read? I could be anyone, some mad axe murder...and I'm wimpy too.

I know someone who's reading at the chocolate fest. I bet it's good fun.

I asked if I could read and they said yes and then I checked my diary and I'll be in Cork!

Bugger! What a shame :(

I know. and I felt such a fool having made a song and dance out of it. I'll be quicker off the mark next time.
