Aspects Festival, Bangor's annual celebration of the written word is back for 2022! The Festival is renowned for promoting Irish writing from well-known authors, as well as showcasing local and emerging talent and this year is no different!

With events celebrating historic writing, politics, sports and history, there is plenty on offer across all genres of literature including book launches, new writing and discussions

Author Malachi O'Doherty makes a return to Aspects to discuss his latest book and the Festival is delighted to welcome back best-selling authors Martina Devlin and Jan Carson to talk about their latest works.

Events for young readers and writers include the ever-popular Woodland Chew and Yarn at Clandeboye Estate along with book-themed yoga, storytelling and creating your own animated story at the Tablets and Text workshop.
