A series of exhibitions, workshops, events and performances across a long weekend from 30 March – 2 April, taking place in venues in Cliftonville.

Festival of Cats will be a celebration of T.S.Eliot’s best selling work ‘Old Possums Book of Practical Cats’ which aims to demonstrate the ways that Eliot enjoyed the psychology, personality and metaphysics of cats over the course of a weekend featuring art work and events influenced by and in celebration of both Eliot and his beloved feline companions.

Organised by Jemma Channing and supported by RESORT. Festival of Cats is part of a bigger programme of events responding to The Waste Land, running in parallel with ‘Journeys with ‘The Waste Land’’ at Turner Contemporary.
