A fun walking tour in a vibrant music city, to discover why Belfast is a UNESCO City of Music - and hear music!

About this event

Take a leisurely guided walk around Belfast city centre to explore this vibrant UNESCO City of Music. From hip hop to classical and punk; opera to folk and electro pop - and everything in between - music plays a significant and important role in the fabric of Belfast, making it a vibrant city to live in or visit.

The tour begins at the iconic Ulster Hall, known locally as the ‘Grand Dame of Bedford Street’ and a legend in the history of Belfast’s entertainment scene. You will explore some of the venues that are important in Belfast’s musical history and today, including traditional bars and clubs, historic buildings, open air performance spaces, the city's newest performance space, its main arena venues - and even a church!

Your guide, Dolores, a passionate local music fan and qualified Belfast Green Badge Tourist Guide, will help you to understand Belfast’s rich musical heritage and will explain the city’s different musical traditions and their roots.

You'll have good 'craic' and hear stories about iconic music moments, characters and local legends - past and present. Listen to snippets of music along the way and find out about some of the city’s rising stars of contemporary music, the traditional folk scene, classical music, jazz and more!

The tour ends with a visit to the Oh Yeah Music Centre, Belfast’s own dedicated music hub, where there will be time to browse the the city's own Music Exhibition.

There will also be a musical performance!

Meet five minutes ahead of start time. Come prepared for a walk of around two miles, in all weathers!
