The other dates and venues are:

  • 27 July:  Falls Park
  • 3 August: Alexandra Park

Councillor Micky Murray, Chair of Belfast City Council’s People and Communities Committee, said: “We’re delighted to host our Summer Fun Days’ events at a number of our parks across the city on Thursday afternoons this month and in August.

“Our parks and open spaces are to be enjoyed throughout the year but having special events like these during the summer months, we hope to attract local residents and visitors too from near and far.”

At the council’s parks over the summer, the Music in the Parks programme is also continuing on Fridays and Sundays.

The Belfast Busking Band will be performing in Botanic Gardens this Friday (21 July) from 1pm to 3pm
