Description

The CS Lewis Festival celebrates the legacy of Belfast-born author Clive Staples Lewis, famous for creating The Chronicles of Narnia.

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.

Taking place from 3 - 7 November 2018, the CS Lewis Festival celebrates the legacy of Lewis through themes of storytelling, imagination and spirituality with events including talks, lectures and tours, exhibitions, workshops, theatre, poetry and spoken word events and film screenings. For more information on the events, visit www.eastsidearts.net.
This year's festival theme is 'Of This and Other Worlds', in honour of CS Lewis's collection of essays about writing speculative fiction. Events will have a special focus on non-realist forms of art, including science fiction, fantasy, absurdism, abstract visual art and magic realism, all of which Lewis explored in his work.
The festival was created to celebrate the legacy of CS Lewis and it has the unique ability to directly connect residents and visitors to the places and people that inspired the writer to create some of the most loved stories and characters of the 20th century.
