Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival Programme Launched


Having mightily weathered the storm of threatening arts cuts, Belfast’s Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival have launched the full programme for their 16th outing, set to take place from April 30 to May 10.

With an already stellar cast of musicians, artists, comedians, actors, poets and every other ilk of performer and event already confirmed, the final programme also boasts the inclusion of The Stranglers, comedian David O’Doherty, several tantalizing theatre productions, Liverpudlian psych-folk band Stealing Sheep, fast-rising festival artist-in-residence Ciaran Lavery and much more.
