When I get a press release from the fabulous Angela McMahon, I always get excited. And I wasn’t wrong – because today it seems the news that NOIREland will be back in 2019 is abound! Woohoo! Check out the details here:
NOIRELAND to return in Spring 2019
Belfast’s NOIRELAND International Crime Festival is delighted to announce a spring 2019 return, with another weekend of stellar names from the world of crime fiction.
NOIRELAND launched in October 2017 with a brilliant line-up featuring the best in local talent, international crime-writing stars, and some of the greatest names from TV crime drama.
Highlights included the Line of Duty event with its BAFTA-winning creator Jed Mercurio and star Adrian Dunbar, author panels with Robert Crais, Benjamin Black, Adrian McKinty, Arne Dahl and Liz Nugent, and a closing event with internationally renowned actor Aidan Gillen, discussing the role crime fiction has played in his life and career.
NOIRELAND will be moving from the autumn to become a spring festival, and will take place once again at Belfast’s iconic Europa Hotel. Plans are already afoot and it is shaping up to be another superb weekend of crime fiction, with interviews and discussions featuring some of the greatest names from page and screen.
NOIRELAND takes place 8-10 March 2019. The festival programme will be announced and the ticket office will open on 16 November 2018.
