A Weekend of Events to Commemorate the 10th Anniversary of Seamus Heaney


Tel: 028 7938 7444

A special weekend of events will take place from 25th - 27th August 2023 at Seamus Heaney HomePlace, Bellaghy to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the death of Seamus Heaney.

Whilst poetry aptly provides the focal point for the weekend, a wonderful blend of music and film will also be on offer, in what promises to be a reflective celebration of Seamus Heaney's life and work. Paul Muldoon, Ireland Chair of Poetry, will open proceedings with a reading on 25th August.

Over the August bank holiday weekend, HomePlace is set to welcome ten award-winning poets from across Ireland and the UK to explore Seamus Heaney's enduring influence. Renowned Irish traditional composer and musician Colm Mac Con Iomaire will be in concert with special guests on the Saturday evening, and the weekend will close with a screening of Seamus Heaney and the music of what happens on 27th August.

A weekend pass for all five events is available to book.  Discount will be applied at checkout when you purchase tickets for all five events.
