Lord Mayor Launches KidsSpace 2015: Free Events in Belfast City Centre at Half Term

Belfast Lord Mayor, Councillor Nichola Mallon, has joined Belfast Healthy Cities and some of Belfast’s younger citizens to launch the latest KidsSpace events which will take place on Friday 20 and Saturday 21 February at both Victoria Square and CastleCourt, and again on Saturday 21 March at CastleCourt.

The events will transform areas of the centres into colourful, fun filled, family friendly places guaranteed to capture the imagination of children and parents alike. Those taking part will have the opportunity to release their inner artist with a range of creative activities; try out making their own healthy drinks on our smoothie bikes, or just use the free space to make their own fun.  As a special treat KidsSpace in February will also host a performance of a magical puppet show featuring Peppa Pig and characters from the movie ‘Frozen’. 

KidsSpace is an initiative that has demonstrated the positive effects of making the city centre more open to children and their families over the past four years. It is part of wider work led by Belfast Healthy Cities, under the auspices of the World Health Organization, and involving interagency collaboration to develop a Child Friendly Strategy for Belfast.
