Open Call for Applications for 2018 festival now being accepted

Applications to take part in Dublin’s most thrilling festival are now open!

For four days between 26th and 29th October 2018, Dublin City will celebrate the life and legacy of Bram Stoker and his most famous novel ‘Dracula’. The Festival will present a programme of literary, cultural, contemporary and family events, staged across the October Bank Holiday weekend that will engage with a broad audience, promoting Dublin as the premier destination for a Bram Stoker/Gothic/Halloween break and welcoming Dubliners to the city to celebrate the author and traditions which inspired him and which have grown around the legacy of his work.

The packed programme of events mixes family-friendly adventures with late-night antics for mates, dates and everything in between and can include, but is not limited to; interactive art installations, music trails, comedy, theatre, spoken word and literary events, food events, outdoor adventures for families, parades, film screenings, exhibitions, talks and lots more; we want to suit thrill seekers of all ages.

This year we’re holding an open call for ideas for events and activities which may be included in the Bram Stoker Festival programme. These ideas must have a real connection to or be thematically linked to Bram Stoker, his works, his life, his philosophy, Victorian Dublin, all things Gothic, the supernatural or the mysterious.

Be adventurous, bold and ambitious. We want hairs standing on necks, horror and terror, devilishly good adventures and unique experiences in interesting locations.

Go on, scare us…!
