The big day at Borris.

About this event

Tickets holders for the Saturday will have access to approximately 22 talks or events across 4 stages - covering debates, discussions, performances, lectures, interviews and readings.

Speakers will be revealed each month starting in January, but most of the speakers visiting across the weekend are there at some point on Saturday. And on top of this, when the sun is over the yard-arm, the evening programme of live music and mischievous humour takes up residence in the Festival Marquee on the grounds of Borris.

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. 

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

See www.festivalofwritingandideas.com for more.

NOTE!

We await the Government's permission to gather within the guidelines for a festival that promises the beatuiful intimacy of a smaller audience (perhaps 500?) in the company of writers, musicians, broadcasters, thinkers and policy-makers liberated from the confines of online life.

Please note: if you have a ticket already, you can get a refund anytime, or you can transfer it to next June 11th, 2022 - if August does not suit you.

Organiser Borris Festival of Writing & Ideas

Organiser of 2021 Saturday All-Day + Night 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
