Warm congratulations are due to the organisers of the 2013 Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival which, by general acclaim, has been the best so far.
Director Sean Kelly and his colleagues have provided an eclectic mixture of events which has stirred thousands of people to pack the venues.
Box-office sales of 90% for the 150 shows have shown that quality is always a draw. With Belfast's recent poor headlines, the festival is to be applauded for providing some positive news.
