Get Ready for the Belfast Book Festival
Date Posted: 28/05/14
From Monday June 9th to Sunday June 15th there will be a distinctly literary feel to Belfast, with the city hosting its annual book festival.
The event promises to be just as interesting and informative as previous years, with the likes of Joseph O’Connor, Liz Nugent and Christine Hammill reading from their latest books. Owen O’Neil will be taking to the stage for a comedy performance and Jonathan Meades will also be reading from his memoir An Encyclopedia of Myself.
If you’re interested in politics, don’t miss the evening with Ann Widdecombe and Alan Johnson at the end of the festival.
Sports fans haven’t been forgotten about either, as bagman for the Irish rugby team Patrick ‘Rala’ O’Reilly will be sharing his stories with audiences too.
Most of the events that are part of the Belfast Book Festival take place at the Crescent Arts Centre, although there will be activities and shows happening at venues around the city. Ask at your hotel in Belfast if you’d like further information about what’s going on when.
