Calling all women in music to participate in the ‘Women’s Work’ photocall at Oh Yeah Music Centre [15-21 Gordon St, Belfast] on April 8 at 4:30pm.
Whatever your contribution to our music community we want you in on this, so we are calling all musicians, bands, producers, programmers, curators, djs, promoters, managers, engineers, educators, marketing, pr and media, facilitators, mentors, festival teams and more.
We need 100+ attendees to better our 2017 attempt, which was a lot of fun and a proud endorsement of all the incredible women blazing a trail in our scene.
An @allianceparty MLA told Belfast Telegraph we are “putting the lives of shop workers at risk” by campaigning against Covid passports. This is inflammatory nonsense that ought to be condemned by the party – which claims to stand for democratic values.https://t.co/BJlZU1VEaa
Further to anti covid response measures appearing on advertising screens at Belfast’s Castlecourt shopping centre and Newtownabbey’s Abbey Centre over the weekend…
via Belfast Telegraph:
Alliance councillor Danny Donnelly criticised the billboards. He condemned reports of “anti-vaccine passport messages being promoted on multiple screens in [the Abbey Centre].” He continued: “This is undermining public health response to Covid and should be turned off ASAP.”
He said reports of similar messaging in Castlecourt was “Very concerning“. “It would appear that these ad spaces have been booked by a lobby group that is bent on undermining public health messages on Covid,” he said.
Alliance MLA Stewart Dickson said the messages were “absolutely shocking“. He said they were “putting the lives of shop workers and others at risk by encouraging this message”.
Castlecourt Shopping Centre has been contacted for a response, as has Big Brother Watch.
More than 5,000 mostly unmasked, socially sardined ‘revellers’ at a concert by James Arthur (top) and Cork’s LYRA (pic 2) in the open air, without restrictions. This was the second event – following Tom Jones last night – in a series at Custom House Square that will attract over 30,000 music fans during the next few weeks.
My un-jabbed wife and sister in law attended the remarkable Tom Jones in Belfast. To get in they did a rapid antigen test, sent free from the NHS & self reported the result. She put in “ negative” and received back a text saying “ You are negative” Think about that for 1 second

I have spoken with the Chief Constable as he briefs political parties. Thoughts are particularly with those officers injured by the unjustified & unjustifiable violence of recent days.Those responsible must be subject to the full rigour of the law.All must be equal under the law.
Met with @ChiefConPSNI this morning.Ongoing orchestrated violence must end. Those stoking up tensions at interfaces must be faced down. Those inflicting violence held to account. Above all citizens and communities must be protected. Politics leaders must speak with one voice.
