East Belfast Arts Festival

East Belfast Arts Festival is a brand new, vibrant festival for 2012 and the first of its kind in the east of the city.

Taking place from 5th - 9th September, it will include music, visual art, theatre, literature, heritage, film and comedy and will celebrate and showcase emerging and existing local talent.

There is something for everyone at the festival. For those interested in visual arts there is an array of events including the largest curated public art exhibition ever seen in Belfast, a late night art tour and a number of exhibitions. Literature enthusiasts will be spoilt for choice with two tours to choose from, one focusing on C.S Lewis (east Belfast’s most famous literary son) and Literary Belfast. Yellow Fever Independent Film Festival will present films, shorts, talks and a zombie walk and fun day in Stormont Estate. Another fun day out for the kids is the Mini Magic Club and for the adults there are two comedy nights to provide some hilarious entertainment!

The headline event will be on Saturday September 8 when Van Morrison will headline the Big Top Festival in Aircraft Park. Supporting Van on the day will be Shauna Morrison, Brian Houston, Gareth Dunlop, Katie & The Carnival, The Wonder Villans and more. Tickets for the Big Top Festival are £45.
