Cathedral Quarter Arts Fest

Organisers of 2 unimaginably good Belfast Festivals - Out to Lunch (Jan 4-27) & The Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival (May 2-12). #OTL19 & #CQAF19

Well jigger us sideways if we haven’t just edged past 2000 followers on Instagram! We’re in uncharted territory now folks... Love and thanks to everyone who has followed our festive escapades thus far! Tell your friends! Tell your acquaintances! Hell, even tell some of your enemies. We’ll be doing lots of cool things in the future and we’d love you all to be on board for the ongoing CQAF Odyssey. X #CQAF19 #Festival #Belfast
Well, we went to the NI Tourism Awards tonight, held in the gorgeous Palace Demesne in Armagh, and bagged a “Commended” certificate. Congratulations to category winners @balmoralshow and “specially commended” recipients @feile_belfast. At least we were in good company! Thank you all for your amazing support tonight. Technically we may have come last, but we prefer to think that we came third! Awards are very nice of course, but even more thrilling to us is being able to do what we do over the course of two festivals every year. That is: bringing world class acts and audiences together in Belfast. Thanks for sticking with us over the years, and those to come!

Wish us luck tonight guys! #CQAF19 #NITourismAwards
DANI - Our amazing Artist in Residence for #CQAF19 has a new single coming out. It’s pretty damn special. She’s having a launch party in the Black Box on 9 June with her full band. If you saw DANI play during the Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival you’ll already know what all the fuss is about. If not, you’re in for a treat... #Belfast #Music #singlelaunch
We finished our 20th Festival last night. We're not usually ones for hyperbole, but the last 11 days have been - as the kids used to say - f***ing epic! We were chuffed to be able to bring together so many great acts and make a proper celebration of it. You came in record numbers to our festival. Wirtnessing the audience reactions was a sheer joy. Whether it was Spritualized in the Marquee, Say Sue Me in the Ulster Sports Club or the legendary Roy Walker in the Black Box last night, your amazing response has been the biggest thrill of all. Thank you. Thanks must also go (deep breath) to the Festival core team - including Maggie, who hit the ground not running, but sprinting in her new role of making sure everytihng happens when it's suposed to happen, our intrepid and excellent intern Meabh, the magificent Louise and her Marquee team, Michael our "driver to the stars", Seamus our "van driver to the stars", sound guys (and sound guys) Barry H and John McG - the beautiful noise makers that they are, The American Bar team led by Ricky and Xander, who kept the marquee bar ticking over beautifully, the guys at Noreast, all our excellent partner venues includig The Black Box, The Sunflower and The Ulster Sports Club, Pauric and Keith for visuals both printed and electronic, our crack team of excellent venue managers including Caroline, John, Romy, Bernie, our snappy snappers Bernie and Gerry, our utterly fabulous film guy Will, the excellent promoters and bookers who helped us make this programme so very damn special, each and every one of our ace volunteers who do it for so much more than the teeshirt, our funders and sponsors, without whom..., all the artists that came and played a blinder, anyone in fact who was involved in any way. Whether it was buying a ticket or telling a friend about us, you're all part of this! And we think you're great. And now we're off to drop Roy Walker back to the airport... "Say what you see", as the great man himself once said. We hope you saw one of the best arts festivals in this island over these last 11 days. See you all in January when we promise we'll definitely take you Out to Lunch. X #CQAF19 #Belfast Festival
“The difference between outlaws and in-laws is that outlaws are wanted.” The great Roy Walker. #CQAF19 #belfast #festival
DANI’s last gig as #CQAF19 Artist in Residence is a corker. It’s been a blast having this ridiculously talented young musician with us this year... Really great things to come from this one... #Belfast #Festival #finalday
“I don’t know how long I’ve got left. I don’t even buy green bananas anymore!” The copper bottomed legend that is Roy Walker is absolutely killing it in the Black Box. #CQAF19 #Festival #finalday #Belfast
He’s smiling, but really he wants us to bugger off out of the dressing room so he can prepare for tonight’s show. #Legend #Cqaf19 #comedy #festival #finalday
A Roy’s-eye view of the Black Box. Now for an audience! #CQAF19 #FinalDay #Belfast #Festival #roywalker
