This July, our book clubs will read and discuss ‘Hamnet’ by Maggie O’Farrell.

Winner of the Women’s Prize for Fiction in 2020, Maggie O’Farrell’s novel is a fictionalised account of the life of Shakepeare’s son, Hamnet.

Set in a plague-stricken land where “the playhouses are all shut, and nobody is allowed to gather in public,” the book has some striking resonances with our times.


About the Book Clubs

The book clubs are held on the last Tuesday and Thursday of every month at 8pm. We start each session with an inclusive discussion about the current title and then have a broader discussion about what we’re reading and swap recommendations.


Culture Connects @ Richmond Barracks

These workshops are part of our Culture Connects @ Richmond Barracks programme. Culture Connects is a year-round programme that invites people in Dublin to try out new things. We offer ways for people to make and create together, to share ideas and connect through culture and conversation.

The workshops cover a wide range of cultural activities from home growing to history, painting to poetry, dancing to drawing and so much more. We design sessions so that you can join one workshop or come for several, depending on your preference. Please keep an eye on our website or sign up to our newsletter for regular updates.

Culture Connects is made by Dublin City Council Culture Company. Richmond Barracks is owned by Dublin City Council and run by Dublin City Council Culture Company.
