The newly refurbished Ballymac Centre in east Belfast played host to a replica Spitfire as part of the annual EastSide Arts Festival.

The Ulster Aviation Society was invited to bring along the famous World War II fighter on Saturday afternoon where festival-goers enjoyed a picnic, bouncy castle, face painting and live music.

There were performances by the Shankill Road Defenders Flute Band, Katy Carr, Konrad Pawlaszek, Polflok and a cultural performance by the young people from Ballymac.

There was even an opportunity to have photographs taken while sitting inside the replica aircraft at the Side by Side event.
