This annual homage to early house docker's taverns has established itself as a popular highlight of the Imagine Festival. In fact the idea has now spread to two other cities in Ireland who are now doing their own version of this event.

 

Short local labour, maritime and social history talks are interspersed with music, poetry and song. This makes for a fun packed early morning gig where gaiety is a civil duty.

 

Complimentary Waterford Blaa's with fillings plus tea and coffee are available throughout, whilst beers can be purchased from the bar.

 

This event is sponsored annually by the Waterford Council of Trade Unions.
