If you’re looking for a way to support the people of Ukraine and enjoy an evening out in the process, the Hugh Lane Gallery might have just the answer.
The Gallery is hosting an evening of Ukrainian music and poetry this Friday, April 29.
Tickets for the event are priced at €25 each, with all proceeds going to the Irish Red Cross Ukraine Appeal.
