And then we will see Street art by International Artists who descend on Belfast every year. Next we'll discover the birthplace of a new generation of musicians. And as we meander the narrow entries hear the history of music from its traditional beginning to its rock and roll, punk and modern genres. And how they have influenced change in Northern Ireland. From its troubled past, to its modern day peace and hopefulness. Other things to note. Though we'll not enter any of the pubs we'll pass just now (to be on the safe side), I will though share what happens within them. So you can return to them later that night or another. Finishing In plenty of time for last Trains/Buses. Or for you to return to one or two of the place we passby to sample the atmosphere within
