Belfast Festival at Queens: Carál Ní Chuilín says no money is available

The Culture Minister Caral Ní Chuilín has said her department does not have any money available to support the Belfast Festival at Queens.

Queen's University announced on Thursday that it was withdrawing funding for Northern Ireland's leading cultural event.

She said that the Arts Council were working with the organisers to host a different scale of festival.
