Dreams for Lammas

Dreams for Lammas: a gala of new local writing

Thursday 1 August 2024, Zoom, 7.00pm - 8.00pm; £3/£2

Some call it Lammas. Some call it Lughnasadh, Lughnasa or Lúnasa. Whatever your culture, in the Northern Hemisphere, early August has traditionally been a time when the start of harvest season is celebrated.

Our third gala of local writing welcomes your poems and short stories that explore this broad theme.
