Festival update

Belfast is back in the midst of festival madness. The fun of the Eurocultured weekend didn’t seem to be dampened by the rain as artists and musicians took over the Cathedral Quarter streets and venues.

And the Trans festival is still running. The Electronic Crèche will offer newspapers, free wifi, Wii, coffee and music in the Ulster Hall café on Saturday 25 from 2pm.

Remember that you can pick up a form for their scavenger hunt at any time on the trans website or from the Waterfront Hall ticket desk and go it alone. And this Sunday afternoon 26 July you can join an organised hunt that leaves outside the Waterfront Hall at 3pm.

Sunday night also sees the alternative Sunday Service in the Black Box Café at 7pm. Words from Harvey Milk will be read out following the pattern of other important historic speeches from anti-establishment figures that were redelivered during the Ulster Hall reopening celebrations. Music by Koko Clown and the Boomtown Rats Cats. (Update - reviewed.)

And from 31 July to 9 August, Féile an Phobail will be taking place in West Belfast – worth a post all of its own.
