Bodytonic‘s annual charity Christmas hoolie “Bring The Toys”, in aid of Crumlin & Temple Street Children’s hospital, returns on Saturday 12 December at POGO. Now in it’s fifth year, this will be the first time that POGO has hosted Bring The Toys, with the previous events taking place in the Bernard Shaw & Pod, and we have put together one of the biggest line-ups for BTT so far. The idea is simple, to gain admission we ask you to bring a brand new toy (unwrapped) or pay eu10 without a toy. All the toys & donations are split evenly between Crumlin & Temple Street Children’s hospitals, working to help sick children and their stay in hospital less distressing. Check out their websites at www.olhsc.ie & www.templestreet.ie
Downstairs in the basement longtime Dublin electronic stars Decal & Americhord will be playing a very rare live set together, while Joe McGrath dusts off his records and POGO residents Barry Redsetta & Donal Dineen play back to back for three hours. The Stage will be hosted once again by one of the country’s top live music forums Thumped.com with DJ sets from Richie Jape and Delorentos, and a live band TBA.
Up in the Mezz it’s the Comic Cast crew with a specially themed exhibition for Bring The Toys entitled “All I Ever Wanted For Christmas” featuring cartoon work from local artists like Chris Judge & Gerry Hunt. The pieces will be on disply in the Mezz from 01-12 Dec and will be auctioned off on the night for the cause. Comic Cast will close the evening with a selection of DJs & live acts.
Finally we’ll be having a bit of a bake fair in the Cafe with various Bodytonic friends & POGO regulars bringing in homemade buns, mince pies, Christmas cake, mulled wine & egg nog, free for all, no doubt getting your tummy lined for all the Christmas munch over the weeks ahead.
