The annual Belfast Children’s Festival was officially launched on Friday - with a packed programme of events.
New Festival Director Eibhlin de Barra said it offered a wonderful mix of international and locally-originated events for young people aged up to 15.
“It's been a joy building on the strong foundations already in place from my predecessor Ali Fitzgibbon, while also bringing in something of my own, so expect some great theatre, fabulous dance, comedy, music, visual arts and literature.
“There really is something for everyone at this year's festival."
