Additional information:
The Black Box Trust was formed in 2004 with the aim of delivering a dynamic and flexible performance space in the city’s Cathedral Quarter, an area becoming known as a cultural hub yet lacking suitable and sympathetic performance spaces for the increased activity in the area.
The Black Box exists to promote all art forms including music, film, literature, comedy, theatre and visual arts events. The building is funded through a mixture of self-generated income and public subsidy. The Black Box Trust curate a programme for the venue for a number of nights every month which is then available for private hire to local arts groups for the remainder.
As a venue in the heart of Belfast’s now bustling Cathedral Quarter, The Black Box hosts over 300 events a year covering visual art, music, literature, circus, cabaret, comedy and everything in between.
