Festival of Writing & Ideas

As the pandemic reveals its effect around the globe, we can only wait to see what is in store for us and whether this festival is able to go ahead, but for now we are gathering more information and guidance before we make a decision to reschedule.

Currently due to take place over the weekend of 12th to 14th June 2020, the Borris House Festival of Writing & Ideas promises a weekend of stimulating dialogue and discourse, gathering together intriguing minds from all over the world. Many are writers; but artists, film-makers, musicians, people who have experienced the extraordinary, or indeed people who simply wish to change the way we do things, are there too.

We look forward to welcome those who have been before to Borris, and equally those who have heard it might well be worth surrendering a sunny weekend for. Come and spend a few days in the company of our inspiring speakers in the magnificent surroundings of Borris Village, situated at the foot of the Blackstairs Mountains with the River Barrow meandering by.

Tickets for the Friday and Sunday of the festival are on sale now , but Saturday is full up.

Borris Festival have a carbon offset programme to counter air and ground travel, food and beverage consumption, packaging, energy use and waste management, feeding directly back into local resources. Video coming shortly to outline the details of achieving neutrality...
