Belfast Festival at Queen’s in North Ireland

About Belfast Festival at Queen’s in North Ireland

This extraordinary arts festival is one of the most important events on the calendar for Northern Ireland, and it is truly a remarkable and frenetic intersection of art and culture. The festival showcases performances in a wide spectrum of musical genres as well as dance, theatre and comedy, while numerous contemporary and visual art exhibitions are dotted throughout the city. The festival is staged from late October through to early November in numerous participating venues throughout Belfast.


A growing emphasis on contemporary arts practice is reflected in our choice of Amanda Coogan as our 2015 Artist in Residence.Participatory new works from the Corners of Europe programme are presented around the city in partnership with the Arts Council NI with artists collaborating together to offer their perspectives on lives lived at the edges of a changing continent. Two countries, India and Mexico take centre stage this year with perhaps the highlight being the multi-sensory spectacle of The Kitchen at the Grand Opera House. The best of new European theatre features at the The MAC with Hallo by Martin Zimmermann, To Break – The Window of Opportunity by Robbert & Frank and The Wolf and Peter from CoisCéim Dance Theatre.
