Kildare Readers Festival 2016

Saturday 1st -Sunday 16th October

As we welcome you to our seventh annual Readers' Festival, we at Kildare Library and Arts Service are very proud to deliver, once again, an entirely free literary festival with the aim of connecting our readers with authors and artists, working to bring the very best from the world of literature to Kildare. The festival programme has something for everyone, including regular favourites such as Ten Books You Should Read and our Sunday Morning Session with the wonderful Dermot Bolger. Along with a new cafe and our pop-up festival book shop, Riverbank Arts Centre will provide you with a warm and welcoming atmosphere as you join with us in celebrating the written word.


We are committed to ensuring that our festival remains accessible to all, and so All Events are FREE of charge, though bookings are essential through our Box Office at Riverbank 045 448327 / *Please note that there is a €1 booking fee for online bookings.


Stay connected and we will keep you posted!
