Boasting an eclectic mix of fine dining, tasty cocktails and stylish food photography demos, there's a little something for everyone on offer this year from August 29-31. TV chef Neven Maguire will showcase the best of 'modern Irish' cooking, and Michelin star cook JP McMahon will also show revellers how it's done during the festival.

FFF SPECTACLE stunners will be celebrated in champagne style this summer at the RHA Gallery. Next Thursday, Specsavers will showcase the nominees for the Irish Spectacle Wearer of the Year. Looking good in glasses is the challenge set by the eye-wear company and the nominees will style it out in front of an eagle-eyed panel of judges.

FFF FRESH RE will take to the stage at the Academy on October 4. The show's dates have been changed but it is still set to stun its Dublin audience. Fresh Re are a five-piece band from Celbridge, who shot to fame when two of their members uploaded a Rihanna (pictured) cover to YouTube. They impressed Robbie Williams so much he shared his Aviva stage with the talented duo last year. This time, they will be joined by Jordan O'Keefe.
