CS Lewis Festival

CS Lewis Festival

Description

Born and bred in east Belfast, CS Lewis was one of the intellectual giants of the 20th century and arguably the most influential Christian writer of his day. His major contributions in literary criticism, children's literature, fantasy literature, and popular theology brought him international renown and acclaim.

The CS Lewis Festival celebrates the legacy of Lewis through themes of storytelling, imagination and spirituality with events including talks, tours, exhibitions, workshops, theatre, poetry and film screenings at locations such as CS Lewis Square.

This year, expect to see some firm favourites, new ideas and quirky events, across five days of the festival.

The programme of events will be announced in October. For more information, visit www.eastsidearts.net.
