Ulster Bank lifts curtain to the arts with free ticket scheme.
Hundreds of tickets for this year’s Ulster Bank Belfast International Arts Festival are being offered to the public free of charge as part of two initiatives from the event’s title sponsor.
The Community Ticket scheme will make 150 tickets available to community groups throughout Northern Ireland while members of the public can apply for 150 free tickets through the A Night for Belfast initiative.
Richard Donnan, Head of Northern Ireland at Ulster Bank welcomed the scheme, saying:, “As title sponsor of the Ulster Bank Belfast International Arts Festival, one of our key focuses is to provide as many people as possible with access to the arts. This year’s programme is packed full of world class performances and we are confident that once people have experienced the buzz of the festival, they will continue to engage with the arts throughout the year.”
“I would strongly encourage community groups and members of the public to take advantage of this opportunity and enjoy what promises to be a very exciting line up.”
Richard Wakely, Director of Ulster Bank Belfast International Arts Festival also welcomed the move by Ulster Bank saying: “We are always looking for ways to bring new audiences to the Festival and therefore applaud our title sponsors for again helping us make the Festival more accessible and inclusive.”
The 150 free tickets for community groups are available across four of the Festival’s highlight performances:
- The Suppliant Women, Friday 21 October, Grand Opera House, 7.30pm
- 24 Decade of Popular Music (Taylor Mac), Tuesday 25 October, The MAC, 7.45pm
