Description

Featuring readings, live music and performances; Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival brings the streets to life with culture.

The Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival (CQAF) is an annual festival of music, comedy, theatre, art and literature that takes place in Belfast, Northern Ireland. The festival traditionally takes place in the first weeks of May in Belfast's Cathedral Quarter, so called because of its proximity to St Anne's Cathedral.

Regarded these days for its socially inclusive agenda and its eclectic programming blend of 'big names', emerging acts and fringe performances, The Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival began life in May 2,000 attracting an audience of just over 5,000. The Festival now regularly attracts over 60,000 people to over 100 events in Belfast's city centre.
