NORTH STREET : A CULTURE NIGHT LEGACY : PART 2

Or, the ones I missed out on.

Last Sunday, I got photos from North Street of the aftermath of Street Art painted on North Street during Culture Night. Unfortunately, I missed some. So, I went and got photos of them.

There was also a piece put up in the car park of The Sunflower Bar. Unfortunately, it wasn’t open when I passed by this morning.

Thankfully, @seedheadarts tweeted this picture. I’ll try to get my own photo in the coming weeks.

And finally, there was a quote by Chuck D written on a wall in Lisburn Road. Hilariously, the person wrote “Chess” as “Chest”, and corrected it.

Enjoy.

NORTH STREET – A CULTURE NIGHT LEGACY

As you will have seen a few posts back, I was at Culture Night on Friday night.

Part of the festivities was a series of new Street Art appearing on North Street, just as it was last year.

So, I went down this morning after the dust had settled to see the end results.

CULTURE NIGHT BELFAST 2013

On Friday night, I was here, there, and everywhere in Belfast City Centre, for Culture Night, only in it’s 5th year, but already now cemented in the diary as a must attend, unfortunately, the last big outdoor public event before Christmas.

The event mostly, but not exclusively, took place in the Cathedral Quarter, which is where I was mostly based.

After parking, I headed past City Hall and through Anne Street, eventually arriving at North Street, the main hub of the event.

This year, like last year, there was a live painting of Street Art. I managed to get some shots of them being painted. Like last year, I made a note to come back later to get pictures of the artwork with more light and less people.

I then had a walkabout, round to the University of Ulster, where there was plenty of stuff to see, with stilt walkers wandering about the streets, and live bands as you head towards the university.

I then headed to Oh Yeah Centre and Black Box, both of which had live bands performing.

But all the action wasn’t taking place indoors, as there was plenty happening on the street, including Street Countdown, which, as the name suggests, is a live, on the street version of the TV show Countdown.

From there, I headed towards Garfield Street, bumping into Batman, and a Dragon (not together though), as you do, to check up on the new Street Art, which was now complete.

While on Garfield Street, I stopped to watch a performer playing Banjo, doing covers of Dance/Techno/Hip Hop songs, before doing a composition called “Whatever Happened To Timothy?”, a song dedicated to the change from posh vicar’s son to gangsta DJ that has occurred in Tim Westwood’s life.

As well as growing in Belfast, Culture Night has now expanded outside of Belfast to other places in Northern Ireland, including Lisburn, where I headed to Island Arts Centre to see Silhouette perform in a free gig as part of Culture Night Lisburn.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get a chance to see any of the events in the city. I’m already looking forward to next year, but might change my plans, possibly taking a half day of work in order to get there earlier and take in both Belfast in Lisburn.

A good night’s entertainment was had, and i’m already looking forward.

I have a year to sort out my plans, in terms of where I go, and at what time, but one thing it certain, i’ll be there.
