Due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, Belfast’s 32nd annual Féile an Phobail has been relaunched as a virtual event – Virtual Féile 2020. Féile an Phobail Director Kevin Gamble says: “Since our first Féile in 1988, we have always found a way of putting on our annual August Féile, the biggest community arts festival in Ireland. Our August festival programme is going ahead in the form of a ‘Virtual’ Féile where you can relax safely at home and still enjoy what Féile has to offer.” The online programme runs from 30 July to 09 August with a series of music concerts, high profile debates and discussions, theatre, visual arts, workshops and community events for everyone to get involved in. Among the literary events on offer will be the theatrical production Ireland’s Call with John Connors on 1 August at 8.00pm, and The Ratline with Philippe Sands who offers a unique account of the life of a senior Nazi and fugitive, also on 1 August at 8.00pm.
