The Crescent Arts Centre

The Crescent Arts Centre Review

After a £7.2 million renovation, the Crescent returned to its rambling stone building—a former girls' high. The center presents experimental dance and theater, concerts, and workshops and hosts the Belfast Book Festival, during which writers participate in talks, lectures, and readings. Nature note: between May and July, common swifts fly in from southern Africa to nest above the center's stone walls. During the renovation, special "swift bricks" were installed to provide nesting sites.
