Call out for people interested in getting involved in this year's Otherworld Halloween Festival on Monday 31st October. Every year the festival night kicks off with a community parade (departs @ 5.30pm) that weaves it way through Ballymun and lands on the Ballymun Plaza right outside axis (at 6pm).

So what do we have in mind???

We'd love to get a group of local 'drummers' together to add a bit of fun and noise to the event.
We'll provide the drums and a drum teacher and you get to 'embark' on a fun, 2 week crash course in Samba drumming!

Rehersals will be next Mon 17th & Tues18th and the following Mon 24th & Tues 25th from 6.30 - 8pm.

Literally NO EXPERIENCE needed - just people who are up for the craic and available to be in the parade on Halloween night (between 5 - 6pm). Everyone welcome - parents and kids, young people, women, men, work colleagues...

Just pop into axis and leave your name with reception if you're interested or email

This will give you a flavour of 'samba' - from an International Spanish Percussion Festival a few years ago!!

Eh yeh - of course we'll sound this good on the streets of Ballymun on Halloween night!!!!
