'Our aim is to encourage amateurs to take an interest in the science of geology as an educational and enjoyable out-door hobby. Currently we have nearly 100 members. Most are amateurs but we do have quite a few professionals as well. Each winter we organise lectures on current geological research. These are usually held in the Ulster Museum, Belfast, on the third Monday of each month from October to April.'

'Originally established in 1962, it was hosted by Queen’s University until 2015, after which a new independent organisation (a company limited by guarantee and registered as a charity) was formed with the support of all stakeholders to deliver a new artistic vision for the event. The event covers theatre, dance, classical and roots music, visual, film and digital arts and literature accompanied by outreach and education events. It takes place every October in venues and locations across Belfast.'

'The Belfast Titanic Society, originally called the Ulster Titanic Society, was formed at a meeting in the Linenhall Library in Belfast in May 1992. Among those present at this first meeting were several Harland and Wolff men and those whose relatives had worked on Titanic ... We are unique in that we are the only Titanic Society in the world that holds regular meetings ... There is a programme of meetings from September each year through to May/June for our members and invited guests. The programme consists of Titanic related material and is provided using the expert knowledge and research of our membership as well as by invited, external guest speakers.'
