“Literary Lunchtimes” at the Ulster Hall Belfast

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in Belfast: The 1925 Visit

Thursday 14 May 2015 at 1.00pm in the Ulster Hall Group Space

In May 1925 Sir Arthur Conan Doyle delivered two lectures on spiritualism to a packed Ulster Hall. It was a controversial visit, peppered with preachers, pickets and press censorship.

To mark the 90th anniversary, Alex Kane talks on “Sherlock Holmes and his Creator” while Oscar Ross will recount the visit in a talk entitled “Conan Doyle in Belfast.” Each talk will last approximately 20 minutes. A short Q&A will follow the second talk.

This is a free event but is subject to booking. Booking must be done in person at the Box Office in Bedford Street, Belfast, or by phone or post (but not online). Details can be found at the Ulster Hall website. If you want to secure your seat, our best advice is to book now.
