The 2018 Spirit of Mother Jones Festival 2018 starts on Wednesday, 1st August and runs until the evening of Saturday, 4th August. This year we have a new venue in addition to our now established venues at the Maldron Hotel and the Firkin Crane Theatre. That new venue is the North Cathedral Visitor Centre at the side of Cathedral of St. Mary and St. Ann on Roman Street. All three venues are within a few minutes walking distance of one another in the Shandon area just to the north of Cork city centre.
The Maldron Hotel is situated on John Redmond Street in what was formerly Cork’s historic North Infirmary hospital. All of this year’s Music events will be held in the cosy atmosphere of Bells Bar in the hotel.
The Firkin Crane Theatre is just 200 metres from theMaldron. This iconic circular building from 1855 was originally part of Cork’s historic butter market but is now used primarily as a centre for dance, especially ballet, and for other music and theatrical events. The Firkin Crane will be the venue of a number of lectures / talks during the Spirit of Mother Jones Festival 2018
The Cathedral Visitor Centre is located to the rear of Cork’s North Cathedral (Cathedral of St. Mary and St. Ann) and can be accessed from just around the corner at Roman Street. It is within 5 minutes walk of our other venues and will be the venue for many of the films and talks during the festival
