This year, ArtBeat – a festival of the arts and culture – will be hosting its fourth edition in Clarendon Park from 16th – 25th of June.

Thanks to a variety of events, ArtBeat festival is looking to attract attention from Clarendon Park locals and visitors young and old. To top if off, the festival also coincides with the annual Queens Road Summer Fair, taking place on June 18th.

Spread over 10 days, there will be over 75 events to choose from; ranging from comedy to music, literature, science and philosophy.

Many places of worship have also joined the festival this year, opening their doors to curious visitors by hosting events and workshops relating to their religion or culture. On Monday 19th of June, the ‘Meet the Neighbours: We all belong’ event will see over 20 diverse faith groups from the Clarendon Park area coming together to get to know each other and strengthen friendships in the community.

ArtBeat will feature perfomances by the award winning stand up poet Rob Gee as compère for A Laff in The Pub, as well A Right Carry on Up the Clarry where local comedians take the stage. If you’re in need of some music to your ears, Chris Conway and Andy Nicholls will be performing a memorable Jazz concert at Fingerprintz café on the 20th of June, and Yvonne Bloor will be playing some entrancing contemporary and classical tunes at the Friends Meeting House on the 22nd of June.

So, whether you’re interested in music, literature, science, dance, poetry, fashion, faith, baking or simply want to improve the community spirit and spend a nice day out with your family; ArtBeat 2017 will definitely offer something that tickles your fancy.
