Time: Sat – Sun, 12 noon – 4pm
Venue: 12-13 Shaftesbury Square and other locations

In SPOKE, Accidental Theatre burrows into the neighbourhood around their pop-up theatre at 12-13 Shaftesbury Square.

SPOKE will bring to life a pantheon of tiny performances in the streets. With localities that have been nicknamed the Second City Centre and the Golden Mile, this often-overlooked community is home to some of Belfast’s oldest residential areas and most curious stories.

With long-time residents and local artists, we’ll discover the sights and sounds, history and fables, characters and quirks that have shaped this place. Audiences are invited to see it anew with a mini mobile theatre festival.

On both days, the hub at 12-13 Shaftesbury Square will also host:

  • music
  • screenings
  • talks
  • coffee, and
  • a chance to choose your own theatre adventure.

Each tiny play in SPOKE will illuminate a special corner of the city, all within walking or biking distance of the hub. Grab a map and explore our neighbourhood (past, present, and imagined) through sparkling new writing and gripping performances.
