Bloom in June! The international literary shindig Bloomsday is on again this June. Bloomsday is the celebration of James Joyce’s comic masterpiece Ulysses.

Joyce’s 300,000 word novel follows Leopold Bloom, melancholic cuckold, as he wanders round Dublin on one day and one night, June 16, 1904, finally returning to his faithless wife Molly. Every June 16 devotees gather and listen to the words of Joyce - and drink and sing.

Here in New Zealand, Bloomsday has been celebrated for the past ten years in a unique Hibernian-Hebrew cabaret featuring Linn Lorkin and the Jews Brothers Band, with Dubliner Brian Keegan reading from Ulysses.

And guests! The show is usually packed to the rafters.
