Otherworld Flash Mob!
Schools across Ballymun will be getting their dancing shoes on and doing the Zombie Shuffle on Friday the 27th of October at 11am. Nowhere is safe as our Flash Mob dancers will be popping up in classrooms, school halls, gyms, yards and maybe even staff rooms!
Let’s show the world Ballymun knows how to do Halloween properly – and knows how to dance!
And let’s get all of the schools across Ballymun working together to create one huge flash mob happening right across the community!
So watch out you never know where the dance might kick off and if you want to learn the dance routine yourself then simply follow our online tutorial!
You can watch it at the axis Youtube channel or at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R1bOJrf_cjw&feature=youtu.be

Story-telling at Muck & Magic Community Gardens
Kids from local schools will be pulling on their wellies and getting down to Muck & Magic Community Gardens – but they won’t be digging for veg, they’ll be digging for stories!
There is plenty of adventure to be found among the leaves and blossoms of Muck & Magic which lies right in the heart of Ballymun. Who knows what lies behind the trees, lurks in the compost heap or what is hidden in the greenhouse…
This is a spooky and fun Halloween outing for local schools!
Crash Test Caint @ Otherworld – Free!

All welcome, regardless of experience speaking Irish.
We all know the Irish invented Halloween.
But do we all know the Irish word for Halloween?
Irish is an important part of Ballymun and now it’s an important part of Otherworld too!
Lets gather together in the axis café over a cup of tea and get back to our roots with story-telling, music and Halloween chats – as Gaeilge and as Béarla!
Hear from local people and artists, have píosa craic and learn something new!
It doesn’t matter if you’ve never said a word of Irish before, if you only have your cúpla focal or if you’re completely líofa! Everyone is welcome!
