This young entertainer needs no introduction...  We're delighted to have Jamie Harrington back with us again this year to present/host this years Otherworld Halloween Festival. Here's a few words from the man himself on what this community festival means to him...

'Otherworld Halloween Festival gave me my very first gig on a big stage talking to large cowds and for that I will be forever grateful.. Otherworld is something I look forward to from the 1st of October every year, Hosting the main stage - has done so much for me and gave me the confidence I needed to get out there and try get a job in TV.

Last year was my fifth year hosting the Otherworld festival and I decided to try my luck and invite a TV producer who had showed some interest in me in the past to come see me on stage because I knew that the Otherworld stage is the only stage where I feel at home. From that meeting with them and them seeing me perform/host on halloween night, they offered me a slot on TV3's Six O Clock show doing this kind of mad stuff  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Om7YZV93y4 and so much more and for that I will be eternally grateful for Emma Connors (axis), Brian (DCC) ,The Reco and axis:Ballymun.... But most importantly for the people of Ballymun for not throwing tomatoes at me on stage'.
