We are a UNESCO City of Music! To celebrate we have teamed up with Creative Tours to bring you a new visitor experience for Belfast.
Belfast UNESCO City of Music: walking tour and performance.
A new music walking tour of Belfast, coupled with a live performance, launched in launch in April, thanks to support from Belfast City Council. The ‘Belfast UNESCO City of Music walking tour and performance’ offers locals and visitors alike a taste of the vibrancy of Belfast’s music scene.
The tour has been developed by Dolores Vischer of Creative Tours Belfast
– a huge music fan and qualified Belfast Green Badge Tourist Guide – in
association with the Oh Yeah Music Centre.
Excited that the tour chimes with the
city’s recent UNESCO music award, Dolores commented: “Belfast has such a rich
music heritage and so much talent, past and present, across all genres. 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. I always knew Belfast was a city of
music, but it’s a great boost that the city has been awarded the coveted City
of Music status by UNESCO. It’s like having a global quality stamp!”
She added: “The tour gives me a chance to share with others my passion for our city and its music, to visit some cool places, tell some stories about iconic music moments and local legends, and above all to make sure that the tour guests have a really great time.”
During the walking tour guests can look forward to a host of stories about key music moments, characters who’ve shaped our music heritage and the current achievements of many local legends.
The tour is a comfortable walk around the city centre at just over 2 hours, beginning at the Ulster Hall and ending at Oh Yeah. Upcoming dates to be announced in the coming days – for queries contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Oh Yeah is also delighted to announce the return of the Belfast Music Bus Tour. A musical bus journey around Belfast. If you would prefer this to a walking tour see HERE for more info and dates.
