The annual Belfast International Arts Festival features theatre, performance and visual art, music and more.
The Belfast International Arts Festival reflects both the changing city and the continuing evolution of creative practice from around the world and features artists and performers from across the globe, bringing everything Belfast audiences have come to expect from the festival and more: a world class programme of theatre, performance art, moving image, visual art, dance and music from folk, to contemporary and classical with opportunities for audiences to directly engage and participate in the creative arts.
The 2018 Belfast International Arts Festival brings an eclectic fusion of cutting edge performances to Belfast from 16 October – 3 November with world class theatre, dance, visual art, music, film, literature and talks.
