Celebrating James Joyce since 1994
The Bloomsday in Melbourne (Australia) festival occurs annually on 16 June.
It celebrates James Joyce’s novel Ulysses – its humour, its challenge to rethink the world, its experimentalism.
It aims to show that Ulysses is for everyone.
What’s coming up…..
Bloomsday Festival 2016 – A Year of Centenaries, so what better than a theatrical adaptation of A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, at fortyfivedownstairs, 45 Flinders Lane, with Seminar and Dinner at Papa Goose – we’re gearing up for a blockbuster!
