This June Bank Holiday weekend 2016 The Sodshow Garden Podcast is back, live on stage as part of the very beautiful Bloom Fringe 2016 Festival.

On this occasion however we are not doing one, but 2 venues over 2 days. Namely, Friday evening June 3rd at Dublin Castle and Saturday morning/ afternoon June 4th 2016 at Powerscourt Townhouse Centre.

What is The Sodshow ?  

sodshow dot com,

The SodShow is an award winning garden podcast and radio show. It airs every Friday live at 3pm and can be found (usually) around 4pm in iTunes and all good podcast stores. It is hosted by Peter Donegan (that’s me) and Brian Greene.

What is Bloom Fringe ?

Bloom Fringe is a spin off from big Bloom (in the Phoenix Park), but it is not show gardens. It is family, gritty city pretty, concentrating at grass roots level, run voluntarily and at very high standard, by people with huge hearts all wanting to make our Dublin even more beautiful.
