Musicals in Belfast

I just love musicals, especially live and in a theatre setting. The last musical I saw was ‘Singin in the Rain’  at The Grand Opera House, Victoria Street in Belfast City. Wow, what a night! Well in fact, I had a brilliant weekend in Belfast.

The Grand Opera House

There’s a wide variety to choose from in 2015, from the ever popular Hairspray, to classics like Anything Goes, Puttin on the Ritz, Sound of Music and many, many more. The Grand Opera House is an impressive venue, erected in 1895, with a wonderful ambience.  The seating is brilliant, as I don’t think there is an area in the theatre where you don’t have an excellent view.

For example, there’s ample accommodation in close proximity to the Opera House, but I would recommend pre-booking.  Before seeing the musical, we enjoyed a delicious meal in one of the restaurants opposite to the theatre, again I recommend that you pre-book, as the eateries are very popular and the area around the theatre, as you can imagine, is busy. There is a real buzz and the atmosphere is great. I couldn’t speak highly enough of the restaurant, food and, best of all, the staff Search for a bed and breakfast near the Titanic Experience in Belfast Citywho were so friendly and chatty. It was a great start to the evening. The musical in the Opera House was outstanding, the performers were amazing, and I even recognised a few from the telly and other productions that I have seen.  I hope to make a return visit to the Opera House soon. Afterwards, we popped into one of the pubs close to the theatre and enjoyed a drink. A couple of guys on keyboard and guitar were playing back-ground music, making it a lovely end to a very pleasant evening. 

The next day before leaving Belfast, we decided to head over to the Titanic Experience. It’s a remarkable location that gives you an in-depth insight into the whole history of the Titanic, from its inception, right through to its tragic maiden voyage. We must have spent three hours there in total. After a spot of lunch, we hit the road and agreed that a weekend in Belfast and of course, musicals in Belfast, as Tina Turner would say are ‘Simply the Best’!
