Calling all book lovers

Join us at Northern Ireland's longest running literature festival to celebrate the written word!

The programme this year offers something for everyone and every age, from poetry to prose, from journalism to wellbeing, from drama to the visual arts.

Don’t miss our series of events focusing on mind, body and spirit which will take place in the Festival Yurt in Bangor’s beautiful Walled Garden. Come along and enjoy a weekend of yoga and mindfulness and learn about the positive influence of words. Northern Irish author Maggie O’Farrell will make her first appearance at the festival. Author of seven best-selling novels and the critically acclaimed memoir I am, I am, I am, her event at Bangor Castle is sure to be a highlight.

This year’s Young Aspects offers a wonderful weekend of family-friendly creative events aimed at inspiring young imaginations. While those of you looking to enhance and improve your own writing skills need look no further than our professional development for writers’ weekend.

So, please do come and join us in one of our festival venues to celebrate and explore the many creative aspects of Irish literature.

We hope you enjoy exploring our programme and look forward to seeing you at the festival.
