The Theatrical History Tour of Belfast

‘The Theatrical History Tour of Belfast,’ is a new, innovative walking tour that sees two actors, a male and a female, lead a one-hour walking tour from The Big Fish to The Soundyard. During this one-hour tour, the actors will perform five historical sketches related to the history of Belfast. This will include sketches about the following:

1912: The Titanic
1914: The Ulster Suffragettes
1941: The Belfast Blitz
1995: President Clinton’s visit to Belfast
2018: Game of Thrones

After each sketch, as one actor gets changed into their next costume, the other actor will become a tour guide and relate further details about Belfast’s rich past. This way, the one-hour tour will be completely seamless for those enjoying this theatrical spectacle along the Maritime Mile.

Authentic historical artefacts will also be used during the tour, allowing participants to see a real WW2 gas mask as well as a gas rattle and an ARP brodie helmet.


 • A unique, interactive and educational tour, where the actors are happy to answer questions about the city.

• Titanic and Game of Thrones fans will be delighted with the sketches on this tour.

• Five new scripts that touch on various themes related to Belfast.

• Theatrical tour with period costumes and props.

• Real historical artefacts that you can use for photos at the end of the tour.
