Kennedy Summer School 2017- Full Programme Details Launched Today!

We are extremely pleased to be formally announcing the full programme details for the 2017 Kennedy Summer School. When Noel asked us last year to step in as new Directors we immediately got to work curating a programme that we hope everyone will enjoy. We have really aimed to build on last years successful weekend to bring you a Summer School that will be entertaining, thought-provoking, educational, newsworthy and definitely not one to miss! 

Our newly designed brochure is available on this site for your perusal, and we hope to see you in September!

Don't forget TICKETS will be ON SALE this Monday 19th of June from kennedysummerschool.ie or St. Michael's Theatre, New Ross.
