The Cork Lifelong Learning Festival 2021

We are carefully monitoring the evolving circumstances around Covid-19 and hope to publish dates for the 2021 Lifelong Learning Festival following expert advice closer to the date. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our funders, sponsors, hosts and friends for their preparation, planning and support. The welfare of attendees, hosts and participants is our primary concern.

The Cork Lifelong Learning Festival is an annual event celebrating Lifelong Learning in Cork each springtime.

The festival promotes and celebrates learning of all kinds, across all ages, interests and abilities. The festival’s motto is 'Investigate, Participate, Celebrate', and the public can do that by taking part in workshops or classes, watching demonstrations, trying out new skills, and seeing others; from the young to the old, show off what they are learning.

All events are free & accessible to everyone. 

Learning is promoted as fun with events including performances, debates, taster sessions, tours, displays and demonstrations. These free events take place right across Cork in a variety of venues indoors and out; including libraries, museums, community centres, parks, sports grounds, private businesses and in Cork's green spaces.

Join in! as a Festival PARTICIPANT

Our free printed festival programmes are available in the run-up to the festival at local libraries, host venues and in Cork City Hall foyer.
