The 2009 NICE festival launched at FACT last night with patron Mike McCartney and Director Ingi Thor Jonsson doing the welcomes and thank yous.

Should be a great fortnight of Nordic Arts with several films at FACT, literary events at the Bluecoat, theatre at Unity, Music at 3345 and the Masque and some beautiful ceramics at the Bluecoat Display centre. I’m also looking forward to seeing Nordic Knitting at the Bluecoat on Sat / Sun 28/29 November.

NICE 09 runs from 19 November to 3 December 2009 at various venues.
