Crosstown Drift - two days of tales, tunes and trails across Cork city

Crosstown Drift - two days of tales, tunes and trails across Cork city

A trail of tales and tunes across the streets of Cork and beyond. This year over two days we drift across the city hearing some of Ireland's finest writers, poets, raconteurs and musicians in interesting and unusual locations. The walking tour commences on Saturday at 1pm and traverses the city over a four-hour period. That evening join us at the Farmgate restaurant in the English market for an evening of readings and song.

On Sunday, hop on our double decker bus as we venture from the city centre to undisclosed locations. At 5pm come along to the newly re-opened Nano Nagle Place on Douglas Street and join in poetry, words and music. The finale takes place on Sunday evening at the River Lee Hotel with a multi-room spectacular.

Kevin Barry, Sara Baume, Lisa McInerney, Conal Creedon, Sally Rooney, Rory Gleeson, Sarah Griffin, Alan McMonagle, Doireann Ní Ghríofa, Thomas Morris, Eimear Ryan, Gerry Murphy, Sinéad Gleeson, Billy O'Callaghan, Ó Bhéal presents plus more to be announced.
