Festival of Writing & Ideas

IT IS HAPPENING!
20th to 22nd August 2021
An intimate Festival of Writing and Ideas for the lucky few
ALREADY HAVE TICKETS HELD OVER SINCE 2020?

The Borris House Festival of Writing & Ideas is 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 welcoming those who have been before to Borris, and equally those who have heard it might well be worth surrendering a sunny weekend for. We invite you to 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.

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...
