The Marathon Irish festival is running in London until September 15, with the aim of celebrating musicians, thinkers and cultural creators from the Emerald Isle.
The event kicked off in July with a group exhibition of some of the country's most talented contemporary artists, and since then, a series of free events has taken place in the Dialogue Cultural Space in east London.
Next up, a double Irish bill, featuring two Louth men – Mark Corcoran and Jinx Lennon, who will both perform this Saturday, August 11.
Interprative singer Noel O’ Grady presents: The Voice of Joyce; An Exile Sings on August 24, and New York-based Irish singer (and former HP cover star!) Maud In Cahoots will take to the stage on September 6.
Meanwhile, Niall Mc Cormack will be installing a pop-up exhibit of 'Irish Book Cover Design, 1922-1970' from September 6 - 8.
