The Michael Palin Award

Michael Palin Award

Michael Palin funds Queen’s drama scholarships in memory of late Festival Director

Michael Palin said: “Michael Barnes made the Belfast Festival at Queen’s into one of the greatest international artistic gatherings. The scholarships and bursaries that bear his name will also carry his spirit of love for the theatre, for Belfast and for the power of art and culture to unite people from all over the world.”
