A weekend of stimulating dialogue and discourse, gathering together writers, artists, film-makers, political commentators, musicians, architects, and more in the lovely village of Borris. It’s a relatively low key affair,  with a casual, friendly atmosphere, that has attracted an extraordinary line-up of speakers over the years.

Date and details for 2022 subject to confirmation.

Borris House, the seat of the High Kings of Leinster, is the main venue, a remarkable place which has been home to the same family for more than 800 years.

Information and Map

Events take place mainly at Borris House, with some in the Town Hall. Tickets should be purchased in advance at the website, with tickets available for the full weekend, one day only or for individual events.
