Laya Healthcare City Spectacular


You guys are in for a treat this weekend…

The always amazing Laya Healthcare City Spectacular is coming to town, July 10th – 12th. Located at Merrion Square, smack bang in the centre of Dublin City the festival is now in its 10th year and offers a jam packed weekend of fun and frolics.

It began as the Street Performance World Championships event way back in 2005 and has grown massively since, turning into a festival of attractions. This year they are bringing back some of the festival’s favourite performers along with the very best new acts from around the world including USA Break-dancers, Mario Queen of the Circus, Bendy Em, Bar Bending Mama Lou, Trampoline Mission 3 and Doktor Kaboom and his Live Science Shows. An altogether wacky bunch but highly entertaining. It’s amazing what some of these performers can do from swallowing swords to juggling oranges while bouncing 15 feet in the air off a trampoline.

Some of the other activities include Silent Disco Walking Tours where you can bop your way around the City Centre to the beat of your own drum, the Eat Street Food Village, Happy Yoga with Guru Dudu and a Layabout Area with hammocks, bean bags and comfy chairs of all kinds, this is a great space where you can just relax and unwind while taking in the barrage of sights and sounds.

It is guaranteed to be an action packed and fun filled weekend with something for everyone, if you are visiting Dublin for the first time we would highly recommend the event, you can check out the timetable here http://cityspectacular.com/locations-schedule and familiarise yourself with the “Laya the Land”…
