If you're anything like us here at, you've already got that Friday feeling coursing through your body right now reading this. Hold on, you're nearly there!

But - what's new for you to do this weekend, you ask? Well, luckily for you, we've teamed up with Burger King to ensure you have a whopper of a weekend with five fresh picks to keep you busy for the next few days.

So, whether you're in the mood for a chilled one, a night on the town or an escape to the cinema, we've listed five big things that should be on your radar.

Dylan Moran| Vicar Street

If you fancy a laugh this weekend then get down to Vicar Street. Moran is one of Ireland's best comedic exports of the last few decades and his live shows are always top notch.

We Got This is the brand new show from BAFTA and Perrier award winning comedian. It promises to be a joyously furious romp through the frustration and folly of modern day life.

Tickets for this weekend may be hard to come by but always worth having a look for resale tickets on Ticketmaster.


Welcome To Night Vale: The Haunting Of Night Vale| Liberty Hall Theatre

If you're a fan of the offbeat, Twin Peaks-esque podcast 'Welcome To Night Vale', then this is definitely not one to miss. If you haven't listened but are very much into the weird, unusual and uncanny then maybe their upcoming live show this weekend will be the perfect introduction.

Cecil and Carlos are building a new house for themselves, but strange occurrences and ghostly encounters are plaguing the construction process. It's probably nothing. After all, how could a house be haunted before it's even done being built? 

This story will never be told on the podcast, plus, their live shows bring the audience into the story in surprising and thrilling ways. It's a unique experience that you can't get from listening to the podcast at home! This live show is entirely stand-alone, so bring a friend and introduce them to the town of Night Vale, too.

More information and ticket details are available here.

'Hocus Pocus 2' | Disney+

The sisters are back just shy of 30 years on from when they first flew into cinemas! If you're looking for a bit of nostalgia and a good old spooky time then luckily you can watch this straight from your couch over the weekend.

'Hocus Pocus 2' follows three young women who accidentally bring back the Sanderson Sisters to modern day Salem and must figure out how to stop the child-hungry witches from wreaking havoc on the world.

Beth Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimi all reprise their roles, as well as Doug Jones who returns as loveable zombie Billy Butcherson.


Dublin Theatre Festival | Dublin

Consider yourself a theatre buff? Then there's no better place to be than Dublin this weekend. Starting on Thursday, September 29 and running all the way until October 16.

The Dublin Theatre Festival brings world-class theatre to Dublin, supports artists in creating outstanding work and provides a platform to showcase the best of Irish theatre to the world.
