Festival of Writing & Ideas

Taking place over the weekend of 7th to 9th June, 2019, 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 invite you to join us, to stay locally or to camp in style on the grounds; we invite you to spend the weekend in the company of our inspiring speakers in the magnificent surroundings of Borris Village, situated at the foot of the Backstairs Mountains with the River Barrow meandering by.
