We are currently recruiting a Heritage Officer to plan, co-ordinate and deliver the 'EastSide Lives' local heritage project.

EastSide Learning has partnered with a local east Belfast teacher to develop a programme which aims to help children build confidence and contribute to their future learning. Called Hearsay, the programme targets children in Primary 2 who have been identified as reluctant speakers or children needing more support to develop good listening skills.

The second EastSide Session of 2019 is all about Jazz with a special performance by Suzanne Savage and String Theory.
String Theory are a Jazz/Fusion trio formed in 2018. They enjoy playing their arrangements of Jazz standards, classic songs & original grooves. They will be collaborating with fantastic guest headliner, Dublin based vocalist, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Suzanne Savage. 

EastSide Partnership is seeking to procure the following services, to be undertaken between 21st January and 31st March 2019 for the Family to Family programme:

  • Research/Survey work
  • Set up and Facilitation of events
  • Recruitment of participants
  • Monitoring and evaluation of activities

About the programme

A very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from us all!

It has been a busy year at EastSide Partnership...

It was a once-in-a-lifetime event – a warm, early August evening, Ken Haddock and his top-flight band, in the beautiful acoustic setting of Willowfield Church in Belfast, with The Arco String Quartet. It turned out to be one of the most memorable and moving gigs of the year – and is now one of the finest albums of the year.

Artful Ageing is a, now annual programme of creative workshops aimed at our older residents and organised by EastSide Arts.

Workshops announced so far are:

C.S. Lewis Square is the venue for an extended weekend of events taking place to mark the 55th anniversary of C.S. Lewis's death and celebrate the 2nd anniversary of the official C.S. Lewis Square opening.
