Looking for things to do in Belfast’s Cathedral Quarter this fine, sunny week?

We got you covered; read on for our top five picks of the CQ’s best events, encompassing the worlds of business, music, yoga, food and drink and – the big word on everyone’s lips this week – Belfast Pride!


Wednesday 24th July, 7pm  @ Belfast LGBT Centre

This Friday marks the beginning of Belfast Pride Week – a week full of colour, celebration and togetherness for the LGBTQ+ community in our city. But as we are rightfully reminded by this year’s Pride theme – #RightsNow – Pride is also a protest, and this is one of many events across Belfast where participants can come together in a safe space to make a placard to carry during Pride and get your message out there!

There will also be arts and crafts that you can make to bring home. For more information please contact Grainne.gibson@hereni.org

UU19 – Next Generation exhibition

Thursday 25th July, 6pm @ Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios

FCB Studios is celebrating the next generation of young Artists and Makers from the University of Ulster with an exhibition of work from the Class of 2019.

The event starts at 6pm and there will be a prize giving at 7pm. Refreshments will be available too.


Thursday 25th July, 7pm @ Ulster Sports Club

Incorporating the imprint of Krautrock, post-punk, and psychedelia, Belfast-based Junk Drawer’s intuitively loose and idiosyncratic brand of indie rock mines anthems from their crate-digging tendencies. Featuring four multi-instrumentalists & vocals fluid in their roles, they’re driven by the contrast of near-telepathic harmony and discordance that comes from a sibling creative rivalry at the helm.

Ghost Office is a post-punk band from Belfast who combines minimalist musicianship with maximalist lyrics, and, thus, the mantra “less is more” with a philosophy of excess and redundancy.

And all the way from Norwich, England: Special GUEST: Imagine the most violently emotionally insecure glitter explosion personified. The pinnacle of excellence mashed into a squelchy, multicoloured paste you can brush your teeth, ears and eyes with. All of this and so so so much more can be found within the realm of Special GUEST.

£6 on the door.
