THE world and his missus know that European Capital of Culture 2020’s executive has a roving band of jurors/ stakeholders in Limerick this Tuesday 12 to assess all frontiers and how we might fill them – if we win the bid.

Check out this ‘to do’ list in town, in tandem with the Culture and Chips festival ringing around Dan O’Connell’s monument in The Crescent, O’Connell Avenue.

C’mon, you right thing, get off the couch, stop being a keyboard jockey at work and campaign for your city!!!!

  • Limerick Post’s Olivia O’Sullivan,  deep in Urban Food Fest, is working with restaurants and food providers to present specials rooting for Limerick2020.  Look for the logo on chalkboards outside doors, and bespoke menus raising a toast to Limerick ambition.
  • Limerick Street Food, run with Limerick Council: this weekly pretty market of tents will deck out on Harvey’s Quay on Tuesday 12, 11am to 4pm. Take time out to lunch on crepes, curries and wraps as you jig to Music Generation Limerick’s buskers planted here, there and everywhere.
  • Have a morning coffee at Cleeves Condensed Milk Factory (site for EVA biennale) on  O’Callaghan Strand to partake in a big surprise at 11am. Guided walking tours of the city.
  • Two day interactive symposium with international panel of speakers for EVA biennale’s theme of (Still) the Barbarians.  At Belltable.
  • The new Urban Garden on O’Connell Street will host the Gig in the Garden from 2.30pm: “an eclectic mix of home-grown talent” led by The Harmony in Hands Deaf Community Choir.
  • International class pipe organist David Casson plays in concert free at Sacred Heart Church, The Crescent at 8pm. Part of Limerick Pipe Organ Festival.
  •  Hunt Museum Garden Party begins at 2.30pm with face painting and artists creating new works, all to a jazz accompaniment.
  • Children head to Ormston House for the Science Magic Show, 3pm, which promises “an explosive time with chemistry and magic to enthrall”.
