Celebrating James Joyce since 1994
The Bloomsday in Melbourne (Australia) festival occurs annually on and around 16 June.
It celebrates James Joyce’s fiction – its humour, its challenge to rethink the world, its experimentalism.
What’s coming up….


was the centenary of A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, and we celebrated with a sell-out season at fortyfivedownstairs. In addition, we ran three fringe events to mark the centenary of the Easter Rising.


is looking very exciting: Bloomsday in Melbourne’s original play, Getting Up James Joyce’s Nose, is almost completed. Watch this space!  We’ll bring you news as the plans unfold and become firm.
