We are a vibrant arts space in the heart of Belfast’s Cathedral Quarter, The Black Box was established in 2006 as an alternative, fringe-style theatre space. We are now one of the leading lights of the city’s arts and entertainment sector and over the last two decades, our dedication to accessibility, quality and innovation have made us one of the most beloved venues in town with audiences and artists alike.
We are passionate about removing barriers to accessing great events and improving the ability for all to experience, enjoy and engage with the arts. We programme and present work across all platforms, from music, literature, and theatre, to film, comedy, live art, cabaret and talks.
Most importantly, we provide a unique incubation space for emerging artists, curators and promoters to experiment and try out great new ideas, laying the groundwork for the future of our arts sector.
As a not-for-profit arts venue, the Black Box works closely with community initiatives, as well as with many of Belfast’s highest profile festivals.
Looking ahead to our third decade, we want to build our role a catalyst and greenhouse for Belfast’s most exciting creative talent, and to play a vital role in the city’s arts offer as a partner, programmer and home from home for artists and audiences.
