Summer's Wreath

The fifth Summer's Wreath programme, which will take place in June, will celebrate the creativity and legacy of William Butler Yeats. Many Irish and international guests will grace us with their personal reflections and readings from Yeats's poetry, plays and stories. We look forward to welcoming you to share in this universal love of Yeats's creativity.

Be part of our celebration this summer!
