The Spice of Life

Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival has something for everyone – wherever you live, whatever your age is and whatever your particular interests may be!

We take immense pride in presenting a robust and diverse line-up of events for each and every Festival and 2023’s offerings are no different.

We believe variety is the spice of life, so we welcome and encourage event submissions that encompass all aspects of learning and provide learners with a comprehensive selection of activities to choose from.

The following are just a few of the activities that have featured at previous Festivals:

  • Language Taster Sessions
  • Enterprise
  • Open Days
  • Local History
  • Cook-a-longs
  • Health and Wellbeing
  • Professional and Personal Development
  • Cultural Exchanges
  • Art/History/Philosophy
  • Panel Discussions and Talks
  • IT Skills
  • Guided Tours
  • Gardening Tips and Tricks
  • Astronomy and Science
  • Kids- activities

The list goes on. Have we mentioned that all events are free to attend?

Hear ye, Hear ye, Hear ye!

One of our goals is to make every Festival as accessible and inclusive as possible. The varied choice of broadcasting platforms available for event hosts has made this a whole lot easier! Online, In-Person and Hybrid events all feature during Festival week and provide almost unlimited options for both hosts and learners alike.

Online: Technology is great. Over the last few years it has helped us stay connected both professionally and personally with online conferencing apps and websites. We zoomed from one team to another, we got some important face-to-face time our friends and family, and we satisfied our thirst for knowledge and learning. It has become an integral component for festival organisers, event hosts and attendees, providing access to a multitude of events all from the comforts of your own home/office/garden.

In-Person Events: The human touch. There is nothing like being in the company of like-minded individuals in pursuit of a common interest. Last year we saw the return of In-Person events to the Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival following a short hiatus. These proved to be very popular as participants were understandably eager to get out and about again and meet and greet friends both old and new.

Hybrid: The best of both worlds! Hybrid event suits attendees who prefer to go to a live, physical event and those who prefer the convenience of online events or aren’t able to attend in-person can also participate. During last year’s festival hybrid events became very popular as attendees had this option to go in person to network, interact physically and enjoy the atmosphere. On the other hand, people who couldn’t attend in-person or didn’t want to go in-person had the opportunity to experience and access the event using their computer, phone or tablet.

Hopefully we have grabbed your attention so keep an eye on our website and all of our social media channels for the Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival 2023 Event Listings…Coming Soon!
