Can you tell this event came together a bit later than usual this year? I’m very happy to say that The Sensual Walk event is happening again on Howth Head, Dublin Ireland on Bloomsday, Saturday 16th June. We are gathering at 2pm for a 3pm kick off at the summit car park in Howth. The event is inspired by Kate’s song, The Sensual World, and celebrates James Joyce, Ulysses, Dublin and of course Kate and her music. This year the event is being co-organised with the wonderful Siobhán Kane and Young Hearts Run Free, in aid of the Dublin Simon Community. We’ll have no evening venue this time, so the emphasis will be on music performances in the open air on the Hill of Howth by some great Irish musicians, recitations, peaches and seedcake on the hill and picnic fun! The event is “weather oblivious” so come prepared!
After the cliff walk down into the village of Howth, we will retire to The Bloody Stream pub (at Howth train station) for pints etc. Note that this is a busy weekend for Kate Bush related events and that Seán will of course be attending the HomeGround 30th Birthday bash in London the following day, Sunday June 17th – wish me luck! Read more on the big HomeGround celebration in the post below this. (Any queries on the Howth event – just drop me an email firstname.lastname@example.org)
