Festival Archive

Take a look back at Belfast International Arts Festival over the years.

In 2012, to mark the 50th edition of Belfast Festival at Queens, the Belfast Festival Anthology website was created. It charts the history of the festival and its evolution through the decades, the people who made it happen, the artists who visited, and captures many personal festival memories.

Did you know you can watch digital events from previous festival editions? There’s fascinating talks with new and established names in the worlds of fiction, non-fiction and poetry; reflections on Northern Ireland’s recent past; and work by leading Northern Ireland artists.
