Fun in Belfast
‘What’s the craic?’, you may hear your new friends say. It means, ‘what’s happening?’ There’s always something fun going on here, from gigs and sports events to unique festivals such as the Festival of Light.
Whatever you love to do with your free time, you’ll find it in Belfast. You’ll find three main shopping areas and two large markets to shop in. If you’re looking for designer clothes, vintage items or something more basic, you’ll find it here.
There are literally hundreds of restaurants, pubs and clubs to relax and socialise in. Love music? Watch local bands play at The Black Box. Enjoy stand-up comedy? Don’t miss the Belfast Comedy Festival.
If you’re a film fan, you’ll have nine cinemas to choose from. This includes the University’s own cinema, the Queen’s Film Theatre (QFT). You can watch classic and new world cinema from the comfort of campus.
INTO Queen’s even have their own monthly social programme which you can get involved with to meet new people and explore new places. The programme is organised by INTO Student Social Assistants, and prices for activities vary depending on the event, from free to a maximum of £50 to attend.
