Despite the cancellation of the Festival in 2020, we were delighted that our Festival Patrons - Lucy Caldwell, Paul Muldoon and Glenn Patterson - along with host broadcaster Marie-Louise Muir, had the opportunity to take part in the Big Book Weekend 8 - 10 May. Co-founded by authors Kit De Waal and Molly Flatt, the Big Book Weekend was a 3-day virtual festival that brought together the best of British book Festivals that were cancelled due to coronavirus and was supported by BBC Arts and Arts Council England.

Check out the video the three talented writers from Northern Ireland as they chat about their work and their best books of the year.
