Event description

Description

We kick off our seventh 4 Corners Festival with ‘Game of Three Halves’ in which young people between 8 and 16 from all parts of Belfast come together on integrated teams to play GAA, soccer, rugby and other sports such as basketball.

The event is inspired by and modelled on the annual Belfast Interface Games, hosted by the charity PeacePlayers International - Northern Ireland. Many of the participants will be renewing friendships forged during the Interface Games but new contestants are welcome and encouraged to apply.

This event will offer participants the opportunity to try their hand at playing games they may never have thought possible given their community background.

Coaches and mentors from the PeacePlayers’ cross-community programme will in the course of the evening explore the concept of forgiveness in sport as well as provide an insight into the values that can be instilled through participation in team sports.

The event will finish at 9 pm.
