Organisers of Culture Night Belfast are hoping it will be even bigger and better this year, as it expands to the harbour estate’s new City Quays development.

Belfast Harbour, the principal corporate sponsor, is making the regenerated waterfront location available as a venue.

Culture Night has grown over the last 10 years to become one of the biggest dates on Belfast’s cultural calendar.

Susan Picken, director of the Cathedral Quarter Trust, said she was delighted by the opportunity to showcase even more of the city than ever.

“Culture Night is all about showcasing the very best of Belfast,” she said.

“And, with the help of our principal corporate sponsor, we can do just that – while also expanding our reach across the city to include its fantastic new waterfront.”

We’re raring to go for our 10th year and we’re looking forward to laying on the biggest single cultural celebration the city has ever seen.

Jenni Barkley, Belfast Harbour’s Corporate Responsibility and Communications Manager, added: “Belfast Harbour has a long tradition of supporting the arts and we’re delighted to continue our support for Culture Night, which is always one of the city’s annual highlights.

“This year, we’re really looking forward to hosting a variety of events at City Quays, which has transformed this part of Belfast.

“The waterfront will provide a great backdrop to the street performers and Culture Night will be a perfect opportunity to enjoy this new part of the city centre.”

Culture Night showcases street performances and a host of venues, including galleries, artists’ studios, churches and historic buildings will open their doors for exclusive events.
