Tolü Makay, Mick Flannery & Susan O’Neill, Joshua Burnside and more to perform at Custom House Square on 16 March

The sounds of a modern island will echo around Custom House Square as The Duncairn Arts Centre presents a family-friendly, alcohol-free evening of homegrown music and poetry from a range of exciting Irish artists. Everyone, from every community in our city is welcome to join in this unique celebration of what makes us great.

On the night, headliners Mick Flannery and Susan O’Neill will perform tracks from their chart-topping album ‘In The Game’, with rising-star Tolü Makay bringing her unique blend of R&B and soul to Custom House Square for a special set.

Belfast’s own Joshua Burnside will showcase his experimental folk sound, with music also coming from trailblazing Armagh flute and whistle player Brian Finnegan.

The Duncairn Creative Collective, which brings together over 20 independent Irish musicians from different backgrounds and genres will complete the evening’s stunning line up. Your hosts for the event are BBC's Lynette Fay and Belfast comedy sensation Paddy Raff.


Alcohol will be put to the side for the evening as we have our fill of fun, arts, culture, creativity and diversity in a safe and welcoming environment. Aside from the high quality entertainment on stage there will be street performers, family friendly food options and more.

Taking place on the 16th March, this ambitious event will be unique to Belfast’s St. Patrick’s celebrations and hopes to kick-start the carnival festivities for the day after. Doors Open at 4.30pm, the show starts at 5pm and will be over at 9pm, just in time to get the little gig- goers to bed or to continue your celebrations in this wonderful city we call home.
