More than just a festival…

We organise concerts and events all year round in both Belfast & Bangor. We’re a not-for-profit, so any surplus income from these shows is re-invested into other Open House projects. Click here to learn more.

If you need to contact us about any of the shows please email Kieran at

Due to the current health crisis, the Open House office is now closed temporarily. If you have a ticket for a concert that is cancelled or rescheduled, we will contact you directly with details of rescheduled dates and refunds. This is a very difficult time for the events sector so we thank you for your understanding and support. If you need to contact us you could email me at See you on the other side.
