The February EastSide Sessions features No Horns, a jazz trio based in Belfast. They enjoy performing their exciting arrangements of jazz standards which feature the beautiful guitar work of Mateusz Chmielewski with the rhythm section of Jack Kelly (Bass Fiddle) and Ben Flavelle-Cobain (Drums). 

They have previously played at EastSide Visitor Centre during the first Jazz @ JACK event in December and got a great response from the captive audience. 

We have been able to deliver a number of projects locally over the last year with support from the Urban Villages Iniative.

We are delighted that two EastSide Partnership projects are finalists at the Eastside Awards.

EastSide Arts is a finalist in the Contribution to the Arts category and EastSide Visitor Centre/ C.S. Lewis Square in the Tourism category.

We are looking forward to the award gala celebration on Thursday 25th January in Stormont Hotel.

Good luck to all the finalists! Full list of finalists here

Join local historian and Blue Badge tour guide, Laura Spence (Hidden Ulster Tours), on a fascinating tour of east Belfast following in the footsteps of the Yardmen who built the ships that would wear out the oceans.
