    Over previous years the Festival has become a firm fixture on the adult learning calendar with thousands of events taking place nationwide, including: information sessions, taster workshops, sample lectures and small gatherings of people who love to learn.

    The Festival takes place in early March. It aims to encourage Irish adults to explore the local learning options available to them through a week-long programme of events and workshops throughout the country.
