We can’t invite you into our venue yet but we’ve been working with 7 brilliant musicians to invite you into their rooms for a series of intimate gigs called

The Axis Summer Sessions over 7 Monday nights starting July 13th at 9pm

They are all going to be streamed on the axis Facebook and Instagram Live. 

We want to keep everything accessible at the moment so they are being offered free but if you can we would advise a €5 donation to the axis arts fund.
