Festival Description

The Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival presents the very best in new theatre, comedy, music, literature, circus, street theatre, film, visual art and family events. For ten days and nights, Belfast’s classiest arts festival (Guardian Guide) will fill every available space in the citys burgeoning cultural quarter with an eclectic and bamboozling bill of delights—hot and sweaty gigs, cutting edge comedy, controversial talks, experimental performances and one-man shows, from both new and established talent.

The Out To Lunch Arts Festival is produced by Cathedral Quarter Arts and takes place in January. The program includes Music, Conedy, Theatre, Literature, Art with a twist. Lunch is served with the price of your ticket. For more information visit
