Play a part in our future

Making work since 2017 The Belfast Ensemble was born out of a belief that artists work best when they work together. Based in the city we proudly call home, we employ musicians, actors, visual artists, technicians - the best of Belfast - to create cutting edge music-theatre for audiences here and abroad.

We passionately believe that music is the key to Belfast’s future. A collective language, music can be counsel, celebrant and ambassador for this ground-breaking place. These two highly political works, coupled with Belfast’s most exciting arts festival ask difficult and sensitive questions.  With your support, this work will live and breath the city of its birth.

Your donations bring live music to audiences

Unlike other companies, we don’t yet receive annual funding to make our work. So we reply on many, much smaller pools from generous funders. The scale of our ambition means we fund raise wherever we can, creating wages for orchestra members, performers, video/lighting artists and more. Your donation - no matter how small - will go towards realising that ambition.

“Straight out of the top drawer of European tradition, being conceived, made and presented right here in Belfast."  - TheEvenHand

“Genre-busting!” - alainbelfast

Our longterm goal is the founding of a permanent performance ensemble in the city we call home. A collective that explores what happens when top level artists from numerous disciplines collaborate, innovate and produce their work year on year in Belfast before bringing it out to the wider world.

Your generous donation ensures we’ll continue to think big!
