British Council is a major partner in a number of festivals that occur in Northern Ireland throughout the year. We aim to get great art to everyone by championing, developing and investing in artistic endeavours.

Upcoming events:

Belfast International Arts Festival

Belfast International Arts Festival – Northern Ireland’s biggest contemporary arts festival – is back for 2020, running from 15 - 31 October.

We’re proud to have supported the festival since its inception, and in this 58th year, audiences can expect a world class and eclectic fusion of theatre, dance, music, visual art, literature, films and talks.
