Next month Belfast city centre will be transformed into an arena for top class music and a lot of hilarious tomfoolery.
The Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival has its strongest ever line-up promising a feast of gigs and visual and spoken arts. It has grown along with the area of the city from which it takes its name and which is now the premiere entertainment sector.
On the streets the Festival Of Fools will bring entertainment unlike any other you are liable to encounter this year. For years it has been run on a virtual shoestring, yet continues to amaze and innovate. It is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face and after this winter that is something we could all do with.
