Literary Lunchtime Readings at The Ulster Hall

Four lunchtime readings showcasing works by celebrated Irish writers

Literary Lunchtimes begins with Wireless Mystery Theatre's performance of Streets on January 25. A combination of literature, drama and music, Streets explores how Ulster writers such as Cathal O`Byrne, Louis MacNeice and WR Rodgers mythologised, embroidered and romanticised the streets, roads and psycho-geography of the places in which they grew up.

The series continues with a rehearsed reading of Lisa Keogh’s play, Ahab’s Daughter on February 22. It is followed by Jennifer Johnston, one of Ireland`s most admired writers, reading from her latest novel, Shadowstory on March 28.

The final event is Martin Mooney: Remembering on April 25, in which the Belfast-born poet revisits the Ulster Hall’s past through poetry inspired by the famous building.

Literary Lunchtimes take place from 1pm to 2pm, apart from Jennifer Johnston which takes place from 12.45pm to 2pm.

Tickets for Literary Lunchtimes are priced at £3, apart from Jennifer Johnston: Shadowstory which is £5. Tickets are available onlnie, from The Ulster Hall and Waterfront Box Offices and by calling 028 9033 4455.
