We had a great time celebrating our tenth anniversary with our honarary patron, Mr John Shuttleworth, who was crowned by Stephen Beggs (from Pigeon and Pums) on Thur 28 April.
‘It’s a landmark year for our much loved Black Box on Hill Street – not just loved by the board and staff but also we hope by our audiences. You are all at the heart of everything we try to do. We hope you’ll keep celebrating with us during our 10th year and beyond. Thank you to our artists, arts organisations, festivals, promoters and programmers for the sights and sounds, spectacles and wonders you have brought since we opened our big doors in 2006. Thanks to our core funders (Arts Council of Northern Ireland and Belfast City Council) who have helped us make a home for the Black Box in this iconic building in this iconic street at the heart of The Cathedral Quarter in Belfast. We love you Black Box. Happy 10th Birthday!’
