Dear Friend of the Festival,
Normally we would be announcing full details of our Cathedral Quarter Arts festival in May around this time but clearly these aren’t normal times and today we wish to inform you that this year’s Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival will now take place from September 2-12, 2021.
We’re postponing the festival in the hope that by September we will be able to return to live events albeit with a reduced capacity, should medical guidelines advise this.
We had a great response to our digital programme for Out to Lunch and it is our intention to continue to deliver many shows digitally in our future festivals but live events are what we love most and we’re hoping against hope that the current vaccination programme will allow audiences to gather safely and with confidence.
Today we bring news of a number of shows, some rescheduled, some new, for September’s CQAF and January 2022’s Out to Lunch. These include;
Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival
Luka Bloom, The Black Box, Sunday September 5th, 8.00pm
Catherine Bohart, The Sunflower, Sunday 5th September, 8.00pm
Native Harrow, The Sunflower, Wednesday 8th September, 8.00pm
Nabil Abdulrashid: N.A.B.I.L. (Nobody Actually Believed I’d Last), The Black Box, Tuesday 7th September, 8.00pm
The Handsome Family, The Black Box, Friday 10th September, 8.00pm
Bell X1, St Anne’s Cathedral, Saturday 11th September, 8.00pm
CQAF ‘Rolling Programme’
John Grant, St Anne’s Cathedral, Thursday 7th October, 8.00pm
Out to Lunch
Grace Petrie, The Black Box, Sunday 9th January, 8.00pm
Aoife O’Donovan, 1st Presbyterian Church, Friday 28th January, 8.00pm
Jane Weaver, The Black Box, Saturday 29 January, 8.00pm
Should any shows need to be cancelled, we will refund fully, promptly and without question but we’re starting to feel a lot more positive that, finally, live music, comedy and theatre etc. are on their way back.
Finally, if you tuned into our online Out to Lunch in January, we’d love your feedback via this short survey. All respondents will be entered into a draw for a pair of free tickets of their choice to one of the above shows.
Thank you for your continued support for both our festivals.
