Aspects Irish Literature Festival

20th September - 6th October
Aspects Festival Bangor & Ards


Welcome to Aspects 2019

We use the cliché all too often but there really is something for everyone in this year’s programme! There are events celebrating historical writing, poetry, crime fiction, writing workshops, children’s events, politics, memoir, journalism, script writing, the short story and exhibitions.


Back by popular demand, we welcome some of our Aspects friends in Michael Longley, Polly Devlin and Malachi O’Doherty – as well as local talents Moyra Donaldson, Ian Sansom and Colin Bateman.


We are delighted to host the launch of Darina Allen’s new cookbook and Gerald Dawe’s new poetry collection.


Don’t miss out on our female crime event and Women Aloud NI shares its poetic thoughts on food.


We hope you enjoy exploring our programme and look forward to seeing you at the festival.
