Event description

Description

Tickets holders for Friday will have access to approximately 20 talks or events across 6 stages - covering debates, discussions, performances, lectures, interviews and readings.

Speakers will be revealed each month starting in January, but we make every effort to programme our highest calibre speakers on Friday, kicking the festival off with some of the most robust and exhilarating events of the whole weekend. It is a day that is traditionally full of energy and engagement, and speakers have commented on the immediacy of the charms of the audiences at Borris on the opeing day. As well as the afternoon and evening of talks, the arrival of dusk brings with it a programme of beautifuly curated live music and irreverent comedy.

This tickets allows you to move freely from one talk to another, but it may not guarantee you a seat in all of them - we operate a first-come-first-served seating policy in each auditorium, but our overall capacity at the festival will ensure there is always a talk somewhere with room for you.

Borris Festival is about experiencing a full day (or weekend) of many intruiging dialogues on diverse and jaw-dropping subjects - rather than visitng a single talk by a writer or speaker you want to hear - so we urge you to dive in. Be warned: due to the intimate capacity of this festival, Friday tickets are likely to be sold out well in advance, and no tickets will be available on the day.

Your day pass is not transferrable to anyone else during the day, and must be accompanied with your ID to access each talk.

Organiser Borris Festival of Writing & Ideas

Organiser of 2021 Friday Afternoon and Night-time Ticket - Borris House Festival

The postponed ninth edition of The Festival of Writing & Ideas will take place September 18th to 20th 2020, bringing together some of the most intriguing international minds – novelists, journalists, film-makers, poets, theatre directors, war correspondents, biographers, artists and political commentators – for a weekend of stimulating dialogue and discussion. 

Borris Festival has become known for its languid and laid-back feel, and for its extraordinary line up of speakers.

“One of the friendliest, most stimulating literary festivals in the world.” – Ian McEwan

“Manages to retain all the charm of a smaller gathering where people are here because they fancy it, not because they are selling a book.” – Mariella Frostrup 

Selected as Best Literary Festival in the World 2019 by The Telegraph and Net-a-Porter
