Culture Night Belfast: Belfast Telegraph opens its doors for films and fun

By Amanda Ferguson

Read all about it. The Belfast Telegraph is throwing open its doors to the public for the sixth Culture Night Belfast.

Our Royal Avenue headquarters will be in the thick of the action tomorrow night for the fun-filled festival that celebrates the best of the city with more then 250 events.

Visitors will have unprecedented access to Northern Ireland's largest newspaper for screenings of classic films in association with Northern Ireland Film Hub, next to our historic printing presses.

The Cinemagic/QFT event provides the opportunity to check out films you know and films you definitely don't at this unusual pop-up cinema. The hardcore news junkies among visitors will be able to add a byline and picture to a range of front pages with 'Headliners!'.

Belfast Telegraph staff will be on hand to take your scoop and photograph to project on to the Bel Tel Big Screen. From 4-10pm you will be able to see yourself on the front page of the Tele as part of CNB's visual arts and family programme listings.

For CNB 2014, this newspaper is embracing a different kind of 'leek', as we are among 20 local businesses and organisations to sponsor a vegetable bed for charity as part of the Culture Night Allotment scheme.

Culture Night manager Adam Turkington said he was thrilled to have the Tele on board for the biggest event in the city's cultural calendar.

"It makes sense for our biggest newspaper to be part of Culture Night Belfast," Mr Turkington said.

"We're especially delighted that they're throwing themselves into the spirit of the thing with screenings and interactive activities that will draw people into that particular world."

Teaming up for unique events is exactly what Culture Night is all about.

"Culture Night is all about every single kind of creative expression in this city that defines us," he added.

"And the Belfast Telegraph is of course one of the cornerstones of creative and cultural life in the city and across Northern Ireland."
