Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival
29 April – 09 May 2011 | www.cqaf.com
If you love all kinds of musical and artistic entertainment, the Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival will be right up your street. This boutique festival is cutting-edge, quirky, high-brow and low-brow, sugary and spicy. Celebrating the supreme offerings of music, books, theatre, comedy, dance and visual arts, the CQAF is a fringe festival in the heart of Belfast – sizzling with animation and gloriously good craic.
Last year’s featured almost 40 music acts, comedy from Ardal O’Hanlon and Reginald D Hunter, a hush-hush play performed to an intimate audience of 14 and productions by local writers across the city.
Make space in your diary for this treasured happening – it’s a highlight of Belfast’s artsy calendar.
