Old stories newly told help keep the past alive, and in Belfast, there is no shortage of people willing to wag their tongue until you’re ready for the grave. Local folk stories are joined with the poetic words of Hewitt, Longley and Heaney as you visit the sites that inspired some of the best literature ever written within the heart of Belfast. You will also come to learn more about the fantasy world of Narnia that was born nearby within the mind of Belfast’s boy, C.S. Lewis, and the renewal of the arts and literature scene within the city that ensures the future will be as willing to be told as the past. Meeting point is directly in front of ‘No Alibis’ Bookshop on Botanic Avenue.
