With two stages in the stunning grounds of the National Museum, over 50 performers and one incredible hostess, this outdoor party needs just one more thing, that’s you!

Due to the easing of Government restrictions around large outdoor events, Mother’s Summer Block Party at The National Museum of Ireland, Collins Barracks will now be a fully standing event. They’ve just added a second stage to the site for the first big queer bash of 2021, and we cannot wait!

Taking place in the National Museum of Ireland on Saturday, September 18, from 4 pm to 11 pm, Mother has packed in as much talent as possible to make up for lost time.

Hosted by the Queen of Ireland Panti Bliss with performances from Denise Chaila, Elaine Mai with special guests MayKay and Ailbhe Reddy, the Mother DJs, Blu Hydrangea, we are in for a real treat.

The newly added second stage at Mother’s Summer Block Party will play host to an amazing lineup of talent including Kelly-Anne Byrne, Conor Behan, Viscose, St Bishop and Elkae.
