Belfast City Hall will come alive on Saturday 13 April with a jam-packed, fun-filled programme of free entertainment for all to mark Lord Mayor’s Day.
Lord Mayor, Councillor Deirdre Hargey, is inviting citizens to come together from 12noon – 5pm to have fun and enjoy each-other’s company while experiencing Belfast’s thriving and diverse cultural and creative arts scene.
Councillor Hargey said: “Belfast is wonderfully diverse, amazing city – a melting pot of individuals creating a rich cultural tapestry and that’s reflected in the day we have planned through language, performance, song and dance.
“I want Lord Mayor’s Day to be as inclusive as possible recognising our role as a ‘City of Equals’ we will have multi-cultural arts and crafts workshops from India, Japan and Mexico, Chinese Lion dancers and samba performers.
Younger children can enjoy sensory play, bubbles and lights, or get messy and creative at ‘Culture Babies’ through visual and performance art.
And if anyone is interested in learning more about Belfast there will be “Belfast Past and Present” tours taking place around Donegall Square at 1pm and 3pm as well as bus tours celebrating notable women in Belfast happening at 2pm and 4pm.
The Lord Mayor’s nominated charities will also be present to give information about their work in Belfast and beyond.
