Belfast Culture Night

Friday 21 September 2018

Culture Night is Belfast's biggest, most exciting and inclusive cultural celebration. As a lead sponsor, we've partnered with Visa to help people enjoy fast, simple and secure contactless payments at festivities across Belfast.

We’re getting into the spirit of Culture Night by hosting our own tap event to attempt to break the world record for the Largest Tap Dance Lesson! This is a play on how easy it is to make contactless payments with a simple ‘tap’ #TapPayGo.

You don’t need to be an expert – we’ll teach you everything you need to know.

This a fantastic opportunity to be part of something special and it’s a fun way for you, your family and friends to be part of Belfast’s most vibrant cultural evening!

If you’re coming along why not practice these three simple moves from our dance teacher on YouTube and you’ll have most of the dance nailed.

Registration has now closed due to high demand. You can still come along and join in the fun at the Grand Ballroom, Europa Hotel at 6.30pm where we will be streaming the attempt live.

Anywhere you see the contactless symbol on the night, simply tap, pay and go for purchases under £30.

Why contactless?

Did you know that more than half of all retail payments are being made with debit, credit or prepaid cards? According to research conducted by Visa, in the UK debit cards have replaced cash as the top payment method.

This will save you time in the queue and the convenience of not having to carry cash or go to an ATM.
