Yeats Summer School & Tread Softly Festival 2021

Thursday, July 22nd, 2021 to Thursday, August 5th, 2021 (Details provisional)

An annual event, the Yeat’s Summer School is among the longest established events in Ireland at more than half a century old, having started in 1958.

The programme each year consists of morning lectures, week-long seminars and drama workshops take place every afternoon. While the Summer School programme is at times quite academic, there is usually at least a lecture or two which anyone will enjoy.

There is plenty to do around Sligo thanks to the Tread Softly Festival which runs alongside and provides a varied programme of cultural events; from theatre, exhibitions, family events and film to guided walks in the Yeats county.

Date and details for 2021 subject to confirmation.
