2015 festival launch

This was a very special year in the Festival’s history during which we built on the strengths of its past and looked forward to a bright future with an exciting and accessible programme of world class events for all the people of Belfast and beyond.

Our new and independently produced event, The Ulster Bank Belfast International Arts Festival, had the full and indeed generous support of the Arts Council, Belfast City Council, BritishCouncil and TourismNI, with the Ulster Bank as our private sector partner and title sponsor. This formidable backing sends a strong signal to the people of Belfast that culture and the arts are important and deserving of public investment. They are vital components of healthy societies as well as being engines of the economy in attracting tourists to our great city, Belfast.
