C.S Lewis Festival

C.S Lewis was born in Belfast in 1898, and spent much of his childhood in the Strandtown area in the East of the city.

As one of the most important writers of the 20th Century, his Chronicles of Narnia are some of the best known works in the English language. Additionally, Lewis was an Oxbridge scholar, theologian, essayist and science fiction writer. He was interested in the power of stories to educate, entertain and  inspire.

This year in what is the 50th anniversary of his death it is important to recognise and celebrate C.S Lewis as one of Belfast’s finest and most famous sons.

The C.S Lewis Festival will take place this November 2013. You can download the programme below.
