The Talking Heads of Belfast


Have you ever seen the Chinaman of Marlborough Street?

Or the cherubs making ropes next to City Hall? Do you

know how many seahorses there are in Belfast? In this

architectural expedition with a difference, Daniel

Jewsbury presents some of the sculpted heads on

Belfast’s historic buildings and listens for the story they

tell us about our city. He’ll talk about the Fitzpatrick

Brothers who were amongst Victorian Belfast’s finest

artists and whose work is still on view all around the city.

Their story tells us about power, money and Belfast’s first

property boom - themes which are still relevant today.
