The Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival is organised by the Learning Limerick Group which is hosted by Limerick City and County Council and is a reprehensive of the main partners involved in promoting learning across the City and County.

The Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Organising Committee is currently searching for groups and organisations to host learning events as part of the Festival this year. Events can vary from demonstrations to workshops, introductory classes to seminars, performances and exhibitions. The criteria in regard to each event for the festival must be free, creative and open to everyone. Festival Co-Ordinator, Yvonne Lane, says “Hosting an event as part of the LLL Festival is a fantastic avenue for groups to showcase what they have to offer, and is a tremendous way to be involved in the promotion of leaning as all-inclusive, readily available and vibrant in Limerick.” The Organising Committee of the Festival want to hear from any group or organisation looking to host events from Limerick City and County. All event ideas should be registered as soon as possible as then deadline date for submission of event information is Monday 9 February, 2015.
