The C S Lewis Festival, 18 – 23 November 2013


Translink is proud to support The C S Lewis Festival, 18 – 23 November 2013, recognising and celebrating C S Lewis as one of Belfast’s finest and most famous writers in the year of the 50th anniversary of his death (November 22).


C S Lewis was born in Belfast in 1898 and spent much of his childhood in the Strandtown area in the East of the city. As one of the most important writers of the 20th Century, his Chronicles of Narnia are some of the best known works in the English language.

Additionally, Lewis was an Oxbridge scholar, theologian, essayist and science fiction writer. He was interested in the power of stories to educate, entertain and inspire.

The festival will include a range of exciting events including workshops, readings, exhibitions and walks that reflect the themes within his works.

The main event will be the Narnia Lamp Walk on November 19th in the grounds of Campbell College – the famous old school C S Lewis attended in East Belfast. It will pay homage to the lamp which is to be refurbished and relit, first seen by Lucy in ‘The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe’.
