Bloomsday, commemorating the life of Ulysses author James Joyce, is always a highlight of the year for literary fans, and there’s something for everyone at this year’s celebrations.
The James Joyce Centre has just unveiled the full programme for the forthcoming Bloomsday Festival, and it promises plenty of entertainment for all the family.
Running from 11th – 16th June, highlights of this year’s festival include interviews with acclaimed authors Michael Chabon and Ayelet Waldman, an evening of political ballads from Joyce at the Stag’s Head, and a Bizarre Bloomsday Brunch and Street Party on North Great George’s Street.
Looking ahead to what has come to be known as our ‘most unique literary festival’, the event’s director, Mark Traynor, promised plenty of fun for all.
“Whether you’re into dressing up in period costume, going on a pub crawl, listening to great speakers like Michael Chabon or soaking up street theatre, Bloomsday is an experience that shouldn’t be missed in Dublin this summer,” he said.
