The Belfast Festival at Queen's 2010
Friday 15 October 2010
Now in its 48th year, the Ulster Bank Belfast Festival at Queen’s once again brings an extraordinary programme of cultural delight, to excite inspiration and provoke thought.
Taking place across 36 venues throughout the city, framed by its stunning backdrops, the festival will bring together a line-up of internationally renowned artists and performers from all art forms, including theatre, music, dance, literature, film and visual arts.
Previous years have drawn performances and talks from such legendary names as Jimi Hendrix, Laurence Olivier and Dizzy Gillespie – but visitors in 2010 will not be disappointed. Ulster Bank Belfast Festival at Queen’s 2010 is pleased to announce a programme brimming with winners of Grammys, the Turner Prize, the Booker Prize, South Bank Show Awards and Olivier Awards.
