THE BUTTERFLY AND THE KING’ RECEIVES SUPPORT FROM AIRPORT’S COMMUNITY FUND

Release Date: 12 Mar 2020

Myra Zepf’s new book, An Féileacán agus an Rí (The Butterfly and The King) - illustrated by Shona Shirley Macdonald - has been brought to life with an interpretive dance performance supported by Belfast City Airport’s Community Fund.

Three sold out performances, choreographed by Clara Kerr, were commissioned by Holywood Shared Town, a small charity endeavouring to make the town an attractive, safe and harmonious place to live, work and visit.

The shows took place in association with three significant partners: The Ulster Folk Museum, Young at Art, and Cultúrlann.



Paula Bittles, Executive Assistant at Belfast City Airport, and Stephen Patton, Human Resources and CR Manager, attended one of the performances.

Stephen commented:

“Through our Community Fund, we are thrilled to be supporting Holywood Shared Town and its unique dance performance of ‘The Butterfly and the King’.

“Belfast City Airport relishes the opportunity to combine the arts with business to not only offer local artists the chance to showcase their talents to a wider audience but to also support projects in their efforts to entertain and educate our local communities.”

The Airport’s Community Fund has supported over 150 different community projects since its inception, with almost £500,00 worth of funding.
