Dates now advised!

As the pandemic reveals its effect around the globe, they have made the decision to reschedule the festival to take place on 18th to 20th September, by which time they hope it may be safe to gather. It may not – we know that – but we feel it is better to fill these strange weeks with a chance of something at the end of the Summer. They will refund tickets if there is nothing to show for our efforts!



Due to Covid 19/ Coronavirus outbreak. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Rescheduled from June as originally planned, to 18 – 20 September.



Festival of Writing & Ideas brings together some of the most intriguing international minds.

The weekend of 12th – 14th June 2020 promises to bring 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.
