Five concerts will each capture a decade between 1968 and 2018 and be introduced by writers including Mary O’Malley, Joseph O’Connor and Lisa McInerney.

Across the weekend enjoy fifty specially written short contributions with a twist from the likes of Kevin Barry, Nuala Ní Chonchúir, Cyril Kelly, Mae Leonard, Conor O’Callaghan, Claire Kilroy, Doireann Ní Ghríofa, Paul Rouse, Barbara Scully and Danielle McLaughlin.

Miscellany50 will also offer a feast of music and song to savour – some specially commissioned to premier over the weekend – from artists including Donnacha Dennehy, Kate Ellis, Jennifer Walshe, Michael Holohan and Niall Valelly.

Throughout the weekend The Cube downstairs in Project will play host to Miscellany50’s Listening Lounge. Here you can sit back and enjoy free access to a choice of content from Sunday Miscellany’s eclectic archive from classic contributors across the decades such as Maeve Binchy, Benedict Kiely, Sam McAughtry, Nuala O’Faolain and Anthony Cronin.
