The Arts and Disability Forum launched Bounce! in the grounds of Belfast City Hall on Thursday.
The public got the chance to try the Big Bouncy Sound Castle, created by composer and multi-media artist, Simon Jones.
This year's festival takes place from September 3rd - 6th, promising an entertaining and thought-provoking mix of music, theatre, comedy, circus, poetry, photography and dance from some of the UK and Ireland’s top disabled and deaf artists.
Chris Ledger, Director of the Arts and Disability Forum said the aim of the festival was to showcase the very best work around, all produced by artists who are disabled or deaf.
