Beat the blues in the Big Blue Building this January!

Happy New Year from all of us at Project Arts Centre, the big blue building in Temple Bar.

Yes, Christmas is over. Yes, we shouldn’t have eaten that fifth tub of Roses. Yes, we’ve got to get up at 6:30 tomorrow morning for the gym. But it’s not all doom and gloom!

We have a jam-packed programme in store for you to beat those January blues!
