Murder One | Ireland’s International Crime-Writing Festival

This event has ended

Smock Alley Theatre, Friday 1st November - Sunday 3rd November

Murder One – a unique literary festival weekend: a fun, action packed weekend for lovers of crime and mystery in all its guises.

After the incredible success of last year's festival Murder One is back with a new line up! This year's festival brings you workshops in Pearse Street Library and in Smock Alley, a mixture of true crime and crime fiction. There will also be a panel dedicated to one of the greatest crime writers of all, Agatha Christie. In addition to the main programme in the theatre area, in the Banquet Hall upstairs there's a coffee shop, book shop, and a fabulous free speakers corner where some superb authors will be reading from their work. You can get your tarot cards read by the Murder One
Witches there as well.

Murder One is only possible with the incredible support of Dublin Libraries and Dublin UNESCO City of Literature – they bring books to readers and run amazing events right across the city from some of the most wonderful venues. They also provide an audio library for those who want to listen rather than read, and support for reading and writing groups for all ages – without them there would be significantly fewer readers!
