Activities and events
Our events and activities will include:
We will illuminate City Hall in purple on Sunday 5 June.
Step back in time to 1950s Belfast
On Saturday 4 June, 2 Royal Avenue will be transformed into 1950s Belfast allowing visitors to take a step back in time and get a flavour of life in the city 70 years ago.
The event will showcase some of the city’s best local talent through photography, film, fashion, song and storytelling, taking a creative look at people’s lives in Belfast in 1952.
There will be intergenerational workshops and storytelling events, live music performances, a photography exhibition and film screenings. The venue’s café menu will be adapted to reflect popular foods and dishes from the time.
