On top of the world ... looking from Divis and Black Mountain over Belfast and beyond
While the Belfast Hills dominate the landscape, looking over the city, I’ve spent very little time exploring them. Today I headed up to the Divis Road and the new Ridge Trail that was being launched by Outdoor Recreation and the National Trust. During the T...

Time to repaint the buoys ... and time to get the correct colours
Long time readers of the blog will remember previous posts about the three enormous buoys that occupy the square beside the University of Ulster Belfast Campus and St Anne’s Cathedral. Just before the Tall Ships Festival in September 2009, I noticed a spot ...

Sepideh - a starry eyed teenager whose stubborn pursuit of her dream to study the heavens is an inspiration
Sepideh – Reaching for the Stars is a beautiful film about a very special teenager who has a passion for astronomy. Teacher Mr Kabari runs an astronomy club for boys and girls and started to build an observatory on a hill just outside the town, 800km south ...

Belfast Film Festival (27 March - 5 April) - a cinematic feast with 121 films over 10 days
Every year , the Belfast Film Festival gets better and better. Except for the festival programmer’s knack for scheduling loads of great films on the same night. I blame that on Stephen Hackett … though with so many movies to choose from, the clashes are per...

Thought for the Day - Palm Sunday - What is real worship?
This is the second of four recorded Thought for the Days that are being broadcast on April Sunday mornings just before the 8am news in Kim Lenaghan's programme . It's partly based on my observations at a gathering of Sunday Assembly Belfast just over a mont...

Years ago, my friends Tripp and Tyler did a video about the things you can’t do when you’re not in a pool. It was a hilarious look at those two guys spitting water at people on the sidewalk, making absurd underwater faces and in general being perfectly silly. It made me think though, are there …

Thought for the Day - personal invitations & setting people free to grow
Who knew Thought for the Day was now broadcast on Radio Ulster on Sunday mornings too? Who knew that they'd be quite so difficult to write for a Sunday morning audience! So many ideas that – in my mind at least – might work for a weekday breakfast eaters or...

Busby Furball: life, birth, death, experimentation, extinction ... and fur
Originally shot in 2009, it has taken five years for Busby Furball to reach the screen of a cinema. Earlier this evening, it had its world premiere in the QFT as part of Belfast Film Festival . As I expected, the Factotum arts collective excelled themselves...

Suspend disbelief and step back into Nivelli's War at The MAC - magic, imagination & emotion
It wasn’t the first time that The Great Nivelli had returned to his home town. Standing on the theatre stage in his magnificent cloak triggers memories of Ernst’s war-torn childhood, crouching in the cellar while Allied bombs caused destruction overhead, be...
