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.

One thought on “Home

  1. Welcome to our brand new revamp of the Bloomsday website. Ryan McKenzie, of Explode in Dunedin, New Zealand, has enabled it and we thank him for it. It’s a whole lot easier for us to use, and we hope you’ll busily share with us matters of Joycean significance. Hope you find the site easy to negotiate and find that it holds lots of interest. We’re a big community of Joyce-lovers in Melbourne (Australia) and we do feel quite connected to Joyce communities around the world. Long may it continue!
