Some images from the great Hope Street Feast on 18th September. There was a marvellous range of foods, of course, and the atmosphere was wonderful as all ages enjoyed what seemed like never-ending entertainment. Songs, music, street theatre, dance and more than a touch of the surreal throughout the day. The Philharmonic Hall was open for children’s films, young people’s performing music and song, the Royal Philharmonic Choir, and performances from folk, to Chinese and Irish artists sharing their culture. Sole artists and duest performed songs at the Mount Street and Myrtle Street stages. The Masonic Hall was open for tours, as was the former Irish Centre, now sadly derelict. Local venues for smaller events included the Caledonia and the Hope Street Hotel.

You’ll get a taste of the day watching the short video which will be our next post.

 

We mark the end of the first phase of our Hope Street Chronicles project with this event. It has to be said that we haven’t  included even half of what we intended. We have an archive now of posts including pictures, stories, poems and histories waiting to be published when time permits (We only meet two hours a week). And there is more and more new stuff suggesting itself every week. It’s been fascinating, and a great learning process, to see how much thre is to be discovered from one street.
