THE 6th annual CS Lewis Festival will take place across Belfast from November 3 to 7.

Curated by local author Jan Carson and featuring over 70 different events, this will be the biggest CS Lewis Festival to date, taking the theme 'of this and other worlds' from the CS Lewis essay collection of the same title.

This year's programme includes walks, talks, debates, film screenings, faith and wellbeing events, family fun, visual arts, literature, workshops, performances and events showcasing the genres of fantasy, science fiction and magic realism.

Special events include Of This & Other Worlds: An Evening of Literature & Music on Saturday November 3 at Campbell College, hosted by Jan Carson.

During the first half of the performance, poet Damian Smyth, novelist Bernie McGill and Bangor-based folk duo The Darkling Air playing with The Arco String Quartet will tell stories and sing songs exploring real world experiences.

In the second half, the performers will delve into the more magical elements of their work.
