Streetwise are proud to announce our upcoming yearly cabaret. This year we're holding it in St Anne's Cathedral on Saturday 11th of May and we're partnering with a range of Belfast-based performers, community arts organisations and the Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival.
The cabaret is being held in support of Ash Reynolds, one of our best known and loved artists.
Tickets are available from The Cathedral Quarter Festival website. For the final line up of acts please follow us on social media - #cabaretinthecathedral
