Mount Stewart Conversations Festival

Mount Stewart Conversations 2017

Mount Stewart Conversations Festival will return on 14 & 15 October 2017 in the form of a truly contemporary, intimate and participative event that’s challenging, dynamic and fun.

 A celebration of creativity and debate, this two-day festival will reveal the unique history of Mount Stewart and its place in history as a hothouse of creativity and individuality. The weekend will include a variety of talks, music, literature and live debates, ticketed events (pre-booked) and free activities located around the house and gardens which can be enjoyed by all.
