An event billed as the "biggest outdoor arts celebration ever staged in Northern Ireland" takes place in Belfast later.

All 18,000 free tickets for the Land of Giants event have been snapped up.

It is being staged on the Titanic slipways and uses the new visitor centre as a backdrop to tell the story of local giants like Finn McCool.

Aerial stunts, pyrotechnics and carnival dancers feature in the show, which involves 500 performers.

The stage is formed by 90 storage tankers, with performers suspended from huge cranes.

The event is part of the London 2012 Festival, the 12-week UK-wide cultural celebration of the Olympic games.
