Based at the Crescent Arts Centre, this week-long festival also offers events across the city in a variety of venues.
After the rip-roaring success of the 2011 - 2014 editions, the aim of this Belfast Book Festival is to bring to life all the energy and passion that Belfast has for books and writers.
The 2015 Belfast Book Festival features both international stars and homegrown local talent across a wide range of topics. No matter what your favourite genre is, we have something that is going to excite and entertain you. From politics/current affairs to sport; from sci-fi to Irish literary fiction; from music to travel…the list goes on.
For poetry lovers, the annual poetry slam returns along with performances by many talented poets throughout the week-long programme of events.
Why not make the most of your lunchtime and enjoy one of our Literary Lunchtime events?
Bring along your junior bookworms to the Family Fun Day, with lots of quirky events and activities to keep the entire family entertained. We will also have a number of family friendly events and workshops throughout the week.
This is just a taste of what’s to come in this year’s festival! Take a look through our website to find what gems you uncover.
