Dubliners were in for a treat this past weekend as the first Bram Stoker festival took place in the city. The festival provided, mostly, free, but, ticketed events celebrating the life and writings of one of our most beloved and well-known authors, Bram Stoker. The Spraoi theatre group recreated Stoker’s world as seen in his most well-known book, Dracula. Dublin Castle was transformed for the night and filled with terrifying looking creatures of the night and Stoker himself warned the crowd of the dangers of the world we had just stepped into from atop his wooden podium.
This event took place on Sunday, 28th October, 2012
