One of the world's biggest and most spectacular literary festivals is coming to Northern Ireland this summer. The Jaipur Literature Festival (JLF) will be staged at venues in Belfast from June 21 to 23.

Since 2014, Teamwork Arts, the producers of the festival, have expanded its global reach.

JLF Belfast will feature readings, panel discussions and debates with acclaimed writers and cultural thinkers from India, Ireland, the UK and more.

Noirin McKinney, director of arts development at the Arts Council, said: "This is a new, three-day arts event for Northern Ireland which will celebrate our links with India and our shared love of conversation, literature and debate."
