Celebrate East

The first annual Celebrate East event took place on Saturday 13th April in C.S. Lewis Square and was an opportunity to celebrate local champions and community groups who make east Belfast a great place to live.This one day outdoor event gave local community groups the opportunity to promote what they do in a fun and interactive way by encouraging people to take part in some of the activities they offer.  Local residents got the opportunity to learn more about the community groups in their area and how they could get involved.

     

At Celebrate East we showcased some of east Belfasts up and coming talent with group performances from; EastSide Choir, East Broadway, Ajendance and Wandsworth Community Drummers all compered by DJ Dave.

  

As a part of Celebrate East we wanted to recognise those individuals who go above and beyond to contribute to their local community whether they are residents or volunteers.  We created a Celebrate East Magazine highlighting the stories of 17 local volunteers who we felt deserved to be celebrated.  You can download the magazine below.
