In response to the success of the first Twilight Market last November, Belfast City Council has decided to extend the free event over two nights, allowing visitors more time to enjoy sample delicious food from Belfast’s thriving food sector and get in the mood for summer. As well as a wide selection of local pop-up restaurants and local food producers, there will also be a range of chef demonstrations, live music and DJs.
Lord Mayor, Councillor Arder Carson said: “We were delighted with the response to our first Twilight Market. Indeed, it was so successful, Twilight Market has been shortlisted for a Northern Ireland Tourism award.
“But we’re not resting on our laurels. Next week, we’ve got even more foodie traders exhibiting, we’ve got some of our best local craftspeople and we’ve got top chefs giving us inspiring cookery demonstrations”.
There’s also an opportunity on Wednesday, 25 May from 2pm-4pm for families who would like to bring their little ones along at a quieter time, with face painting and fun chocolate workshop from Aunt Sandra’s Candy Factory.
The Twilight Market will be open on Tuesday, 24 May from 5pm to 11pm and on Wednesday, 25 May from 12 noon to 11pm.
