Now in it’s 13th year the Leaves Festival of Writing and Music continues to grow from strength to strength and is becoming a firm fixture on the literary circuit. The festival celebrates writing and music in the beautiful setting of Laois. Leaves is the festival to enjoy contemporary writers, the art of conversation, musicians, film and theatre.
For 2020, the Leaves Festival of Writing and Music faced challenges set by Covid 19 restrictions. For this year, writers and audiences cannot gather together in large numbers at Dunamaise Arts Centre and other beautiful locations across lovely Laois. The decision was made to broadcast Leaves instead and present all events in the form of Podcasts. Through these podcasts, Leaves On Air will continue to celebrate writing and music and encourage people to enjoy contemporary Irish writers, the art of conversation and wonderful music, from the comfort of home.
