Words By Water – Kinsale Literary Festival
Like so many others, the team behind Words By Water, Kinsale’s Literary Festival, have sorely missed in-person events as we all stood firm and tackled Covid-19 by staying apart. Now that it will soon be once again possible to meet and share communal experiences, we are busy planning a full in-person programme of readings, discussions and other events for this year’s festival, taking place from Thursday, September 29th to Sunday, October 2nd.
In the meantime, we have two special events planned for May.
On May 15th, we are thrilled to be once again hosting Heartbreak Productions, who will be performing Awful Auntie, a play based on the book by David Walliams. This year the performance is taking place in the hall at Sáile, so no need to worry about rain dampening spirits on the day! The performance is suitable for ages 7+, who can look forward to a truly thrilling tale.
Owls, ghosts, chases, escapes, motorcycle rides, and tiddlywinks all fill Stella’s days as she evades her menacing Aunt and saves the family home.
Make sure you bring rugs or cushions to sit on, and a picnic, as the tale could take some time to tell, and storytelling can be hungry work!
On Friday, May 6th, we are hosting a table quiz fundraiser for our festival. We have enjoyed some brilliant nights at our previous quizzes in The Lord Kingsale and hope all our quizzers have been honing their general knowledge during lockdown – we’re not the only ones who watched hours and hours of The Chase, right?! Keep an eye on our social media for exact times, we look forward to seeing you for an evening of questions and answers, raffles and fun.
