Hear five writers retell stories from Hillsborough’s fascinating history

Join five prominent Northern Ireland based writers - Jan Carson, Emily Dedakis, Maeve O’Lynn, Ian Samson and Myra Zepf - as they read new pieces of writing that animate the lives of Hillsborough Castle's former residents. 

This event launches a new collaborative publication produced by Hillsborough Castle and Gardens and the John Hewitt Society. It features the writers' work, as well as contributions by participants from community groups who took part in workshops with the writers.

The event will include readings by some of the community participants.

This project is supported by Heritage Lottery Fund and Community Relations Council. We would also like to thank Institute for Conflict Research for their support.

This event will take place in the Clore Learning Centre.
