About Folktown

Folk Town Community Interest Company, a social enterprise, not-for-profit, and it’s steering committee comprising local churches, pubs, restaurants, businesses, youth and arts organisations. Any surplus generated through our projects is channeled back into the regeneration of the area. The local community decide where best to spend the resources. We aim to generate funds for our regeneration plans along with an invaluable and ever-increasing social capital

Folktown Community Interest Company is working to regenerate one of the oldest and most fascinating parts of Belfast city centre. The community in this small area which is made up of small traders, arts organisations, churches, pubs, restaurants and residents, have named the area Folktown to capitalise on its thriving music and arts scene along with its great heritage.

By producing high quality cultural events (markets, festivals, guided tours, etc) we can attract more shoppers and visitors, which in turn will help the businesses grow, generate wealth and create jobs. In the long term we hope this will bring scope for more businesses to set up in the area and also bring much needed investment.
