about

In Belfast Taxi the city’s taxi drivers – of all ages and from all backgrounds – tell their stories in their own words, covering everything from the beginnings of the public-hire and private-hire industries, to the dark days of the Troubles and the vital role taxis currently play in Belfast’s burgeoning tourist economy.

Join Lee Henry as he tours the city in the company of the city’s drivers, including Charlie, who drove members of the press throughout the Troubles; Majella, one of the very few women driving a West Belfast Taxi Association taxi-bus; Ralph, who worked for one of Belfast’s private-hire firms from 1950; and Billy, a fully qualified blue badge taxi guide.

Based on interviews with over thirty drivers, Belfast Taxi is an authentic and candid chronicle of the city told by the people who know it best.
