Arts and Culture at Home

Listen to an orchestra in your armchair, or lose yourself in an historic art collection at your kitchen table. While Belfast’s galleries, museums and event spaces have closed temporarily, you can soak up the city’s cultural scene from the comfort of your own home.

Tune into Ulster Orchestra’s YouTube channel for solo performances and recitals straight from the performers’ homes to yours; or examine fine art and sculptures in the Ulster Museum’s online collection. And don’t miss Imagine Belfast Festival 2021 from 22 to 28 March – a feast of free online talks, workshops and films covering some of the most important topics of our time.

Family Things to Do at Home

Looking for things to do with the kids at home? Belfast’s family-friendly visitor attractions have a wealth of activity packs, stories, videos and online resources so kids can keep discovering the city from home.

The annual Winter Circus has swapped the big tent for the small screen – watch their breathtaking acrobatics and family-friendly show on YouTube.

Visit Learning SPACE’s online store for board games, toys and books, as well as educational resources for all ages and abilities to stock up your home classroom.

Taste of Belfast at Home

Belfast is brimming with independent eateries, and while they’re closed at the minute, you can still enjoy their award-winning flavours at home through these online cookery demos, recipes and delivery services.

Browse online recipe collections from James St, or recreate Titanic Belfast’s Sunday Afternoon Tea.
