Visit Website

Both Wexford readers and others who visit Enniscorthy for this annual event will enjoy a lovely low key friendly event, with something to interest book lovers of all ages.

There are workshops, readings and lectures with well known guest speakers on the literary side, but also music, craft and lots of events for kids as well.

The Afternoon Tea poetry readings sound like a delight, while a Writer’s Showcase gives emerging writers a platform to share their work. An open mic night, Focal Has Talent, invites anyone with the courage to take to the stage with prose, poetry, sketches or song.

Date and details for 2020 subject to confirmation.
