Living Streets – Car Free Event in Dublin City on Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

Two out of three Europeans live in an urban environment. European Mobility Week is an initiative to promote sustainable modes of travel and improvement of the urban environment.

Living Streets is a day long programme of events being organised by Dublin City Council on South William Street, Drury Street, Fade Street, Castle Market and Coppinger Row on Wednesday 22nd September as part of European Mobility Week. Roads will be closed to motorised vehicles and there will be free live music and comedy, an exhibition of cargo bikes and an outdoor evening movie.

Music will be provided by Rory Faithfield, the Niall Toner Band and the Hot Club of Dublin on the main stage on Drury Street. Live comedy acts will include Andrew Stanley, Damien Clark, Eric Lalor and Fred Cooke. When it gets dark there will be a screening of the animated masterpiece ‘Belleville Rendezvous’ on Dury Street. This projection will be pedal powered so the organisers will need volunteers from the audience to keep the show going.
