CS Lewis Festival
Clive Staples Lewis, the renowned author of The Chronicles of Narnia, was born in Belfast in 1898.
From 3rd – 7tg November, EastSide Arts and Connswater Community Greenway will present the 5rd C.S. Lewis Festival.
The Festival will not only showcase Lewis’ diverse works and legacy but his strong connections to his childhood home of east Belfast. Through a series of events and activities including talks, film, theatre, arts, crafts, readings, music, workshops, exhibitions, tours and literature - everyone is invited to open the wardrobe door to the world of C.S. Lewis.
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.
