Bring-Your-Own Bloomsday


Bring-Your-Own-Bloomsday: to celebrate Bloomsday, join us in reading Joyce's Ulysses together.

If you want to participate, come along and be prepared to read aloud one of your favourite parts of Ulysses (max. 5 mins duration, please).

We'll read a piece or two as well.
Attending and just listening is also fine too.

As Bloomsday (16 June) falls on a Sunday this year, when the shop is closed, we will celebrate one day earlier than usual on Saturday 15 June.

The traditional Bloomsday refreshments will be available.

This event is supported by the Embassy of Ireland, Germany.

Doors open at 18:30 and we will aim to start at 19:00.

Olive and Oak


Olive and Oak is an evening of artistic expression of solidarity between Ireland and Palestine through poetry.

Attendees will be invited to read aloud from our selection of Palestinian and Irish poems.

This will include poems from Gaza Passages - a vital project which collects, translate and publishes texts from Palestinian writers confronting the genocide in Gaza.

Irish Bloc Berlin and Curious Fox have collated a collection of Irish poems that speak to the themes of resistance and liberation and we invite you to take turns reading these with us.

There is no entrance fee, however we will be passing around a hat and asking for donations. All proceeds will go to a humanitarian cause in Gaza. We are looking into the best and most effective option and will announce that in due course.

Doors open at 19:30. The event will start at 20:00.
