Theatre lovers in Belfast have been treated to a live performance for the first time since the start of the pandemic.Only 90 minutes after Stormont regulations formally changed to permit theatres to reopen, the lights went down at the Lyric Theatre for the opening night of Dracula.

However, the restrictions did not dampen spirits and the call for people to take their seats was greeted with a loud cheer in the theatre bar and foyer ahead of the performance.
