Bloomsday Social: Celebrating James Joyce and Anthony Burgess at International Anthony Burgess Foundation (IABF), Manchester, 16 June 2022, free entry - Visit now

Head to the International Anthony Burgess Foundation for a special Bloomsday social, celebrating the life of Irish writer James Joyce and the 100th publication anniversary of James Joyce’s Ulysses and Burgess’s creative responses to Joyce’s work.

Manchester author of A Clockwork Orange, Anthony Burgess was strongly influenced by Joyce, and he re-read Ulysses, his favourite novel, at least once every year. His introductory book on Joyce, Here Comes Everybody, was described by Philip Toynbee in the Observer as ‘the best study of Joyce I have ever read’.

Manchester author of A Clockwork Orange, Anthony Burgess was strongly influenced by Joyce, and he re-read Ulysses, his favourite novel, at least once every year.

The Bloomsday Social: Celebrating James Joyce and Anthony Burgess evening will involve music, film and song. There will be a wine reception and plenty of socialising, including opportunities to meet the staff of the Foundation and see highlights from the Burgess archive. You can expect songs from the musical Blooms Of Dublin and an unusual pack of Joyce-themed playing cards.

Bloomsday is observed in Dublin and elsewhere every year on 16 June, and this event is supported by the Irish Consulate.

Free, but please confirm your attendance via the Eventbrite page.
