The clocks go back tomorrow morning

The clocks are set to go back an hour at 2am tomorrow, which will mean an extra hour in bed to recover from all the bank holiday shenanigans.

And there are a number of events taking place across the city to prepare you for the extra hour's rest.

For those looking for a scare, the Bram Stoker Festival is bound to give revellers a fright.

The festival will run until Monday, October 27, and it's a series of events to celebrate the author's greatest work - Dracula.

One of the highlights is a 'VampWire', which lets fans get their teeth into the Dracula theme and pretend to be a vampire while they zipline across Wolfe Tone Park beside Jervis Shopping Centre.

Among the festival events the Horrorthon at the Irish Film Institute, a shape-shifters ball at the Irish Museum of Modern Art and cookery classes that teach you how to create gory dishes to spook your guests are the best of options.

Meanwhile, The Make A Wish Foundation's Witches and Wizards 5km Fun Run will take place this morning at the Phoenix Park.

The fun run is one of a series of events to raise funds for the children's charity.

"We need to grant a further 20 wishes this year to reach our target of 150 wishes for 2014, but we don't have the funding necessary," head of fundraising Irene Timmins told the Herald.

"We must achieve this target as we have a further 200 children on our waiting list, some of them don't have time to wait."
