Mullingar festival to honour Josephine Hart

“Hart to Heart; the Heart of Ireland Festival is a wonderful tribute to Ireland’s literary greatness. The Josephine Hart Poetry Hour is delighted to take part in this great event.”
– The encouraging words of Maurice Saatchi, husband of the late Josephine Hart from Mullingar.

Mr. Saatchi, one of the world’s foremost figures in advertising, has shown his enthusiasm for the inaugural Heart of Ireland Festival which takes place this summer.
“We want to showcase the best of local midlands’ talent and our line up would be incomplete without recognising Josephine Hart, an amazing woman, the first female director of Haymarket, bestselling author, West End theatre producer and champion of struggling poets.” explains Festival Creative Director, Melanie Lynch. “She devised an ingenious formula for the renowned Josephine Hart Poetry Hour, inveigling leading actors to perform rather than recite the works of her beloved poets to great effect.”
