About the organiser

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
