All our golden yesterdays - back in the heart of Belfast!

Ever wondered how you can harvest your own honey in the city? Or how  to weave your own basket? And what about spinning your own wool or making your own ram’s head poker? Come along and meet a community of artisans & craftspeople in St Georges Market on market days.

There you will come face to face with bee keepers, weavers, spinners, bakers, basket-makers and blacksmiths and what about learning from the experts on how to prepare food, fish and meat in age-old traditional ways?

 The bees will not be the only ones buzzin’- see a weaver create linen before your very eyes – and get the heart –warming delicious smell of fresh soda farls and potato bread made in the old traditional ways.

Then there is the historical tour around St Georges Market itself. Learn all about how it was built and all the people who have made a living in it over the years and the many famous people who have passed through it. Find out why our ancestors thronged thick and fast to attend the weekly jamboree that the life of the market offered. They too had to count the pennies as they went hunting for bargains. Some traders trekked for miles from the surrounding countryside from early morning to ensure they had a good pitch for their stalls or carts.


    Come back in time with us for an experience you won’t forget – on each and every market day
