END OF THE EVENING:

Real Sketchy
The Green Room @ The Black Box

When Late Night Art just isn’t late enough, Real Sketchy is here for you. (I mean 9pm isn’t really that late is it but ‘Early Night, Tucked Up in Bed with an Ovaltine by Nine Art’ doesn’t really scan does it)

InkMonkey Art Supplies provide the pens and paper, Black Box serve up the booze & pizza and we scan the hell out of everything while playing you the finest tunage.

You’d be surprised the amount of fun you can have with a pencil, a scanner and a premium Spotify account.

Oh and it’s free in like!

Belfast Photo Festival – Launch Night
Bullitt Hotel

The party to launch the 2017 Belfast Photo Festival will be lead by one of the hottest DJ groups to come out of Northern Ireland, the one and only Schmutz. This energising house and techno duo will have you hear subtle bells ring, percussion rattle and a whole load of twisting and turning for some nearing the end of the night.

The night will also feature screenings in partnership with LensCulture and Festival Circulations
