After a two-year hiatus, Belfast Children’s Festival has joined forces with Cathedral Quarter Business Improvement District to bring audiences the ‘Giant Family Day Out’ 1-4pm on 12 March.


All Giant Family Day Out performances are free and include DJ workshops, walking tours and pop-up performances throughout Cathedral Quarter.

“We’re over the moon to bring you our GIANT FAMILY DAY OUT on Saturday 12 March, in the Cathedral Quarter and are delighted to be working with CQ BID again. The partnership with CQ BID has allowed us to bring our audiences even more fantastic events and performances.   Look out for festival favourites like the ArtCart, our pop-up cinema in Wyndham by Ramada, ‘GIANT’ walkabout characters, circus, street comedy, magic tricks, storytelling, a penalty shootout with Belfast Giants and so much more!

“All GIANT FAMILY DAY OUT events are completely free.   So, why not grab lunch or a snack at one of the many Cathedral Quarter businesses who have created special offers for families, then soak up all the GIANT sights and sounds?”

Damien Corr, Manager Cathedral Quarter BID said:

“We're delighted to welcome Belfast Children’s Festival back in 2022, live and in person and what an exciting line up is in store for families at the Giant Family Day Out in Cathedral Quarter on 12 March.   

“We’re pleased to partner with Young at Art to encourage families back to the City, to enjoy performances and to take advantage of the leisure, hospitality and retail businesses in Cathedral Quarter.   It’s been a really challenging time for everyone so now we want to show new and returning visitors just what Cathedral Quarter has to offer to families.”
