Yeats Festivals Review

There's no getting away from events linked to the illustrious Yeats family. The Yeats International Summer School has been a permanent fixture for 55 years and is a prestigious academic talking shop. It runs for 12 days from the end of July. The Yeats Winter School is held over a weekend in January and includes lectures and tours. Details of these are at www.yeats-sligo.com. Not to be outdone, W. B.'s brother Jack B., the painter, is increasingly being brought into the limelight. In 2012, a new event, Tread Softly, a mix of theater, music, film, art and readings, was launched. It takes place at the same time as the summer school and explores the link between the brothers: www.seasonofyeats.com.
