Mr Leon, the flamboyant taxi-driver created by French illustrator Barroux, travels the world without ever leaving his home city of Paris. But, as a special favour to The Vagabond, he’s driving his taxi to Dublin. Now it’s your turn to step inside and spin us a short yarn about your own taxi ride – real or imaginary. The big question is: where are you going? Hop in and tell Mr Leon where to take you, and watch you journey being illustrated before your eyes. The Vagabond, Monkeyshine’s wondering venue, is coming to St Patrick’s Park, bringing with it some beautiful stories old and new. The Vagabond is a place for families to gather and enjoy some of the simple things in life: stories, music, nature and good company. Enjoy wonderfully relaxed, free family events throughout the day in the quiet heart of the city. Situated beside the impressive St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the park also boasts a children’s playground, café and literary parade.
