Words of literature...spread the WORD: 9th Annual Bloomsday 2012: Saturday 16th June

Wear your brightest colours
A Celebration of Literature - Words - Wit – Wonder - Wisdom - Where?

James Joyces book 'Ulysses' depicts the events of one day when Stephen Dedalus and Leopold Bloom took their epic journey through Dublin.

For millions of people, June 16 is an extraordinary day. On  that day in 1904, Stephen Dedalus and Leopold Bloom each took their epic journeys through Dublin in James Joyce's Ulysses, the world's most highly acclaimed modern novel. "Bloomsday", as it is now known, has become a tradition for Joyce enthusiasts all over the world. From Tokyo to Sydney, San Francisco to Paris, Trieste to.... Northampton, dozens of cities around the globe hold their own Bloomsday festivities. The celebrations usually include readings as well as staged re-enactments and street-side improvisations of scenes from the story.

To celebrate that special day, known as Bloomsday, the Irish Community Arts Project will present a reading by invited literary figures at the graveside of Lucia Anna Joyce who died in Northampton in 1982.
The event will take place at 3pm on Saturday 16th June 2012 at Kingsthorpe Cemetery, Northampton

The Triskelion Theatre Company will perform in period costume. Free event.
