Great things to do in Dublin this weekend

Don\’t be confused by the name. Ukulele Tuesday are the band. The event takes place on Saturday and it should be great fun. Ukulele Tuesday started as a small musical get-together in the Stag’s Head pub (just around the corner from the school) and it soon became pretty big.  ‘Psycho Killer’ by Talking Heads and ‘Hit Me Baby’ by Brittney Spears are among their best-known online renditions while Conde Naste has listed Ukulele Tuesday as #2 on their list of “10 Amazing Things to do in Dublin”. This event is part of Trad Fest 2020 which takes place across Dublin from January 22nd – 26th.
