We are delighted to officially launch this celebratory programme and invite people to share in a packed programme of events including talks, tours, exhibitions and events all designed to mark the centenary of Northern Ireland.

Celebrating Our People, embracing Our Place and sharing Our Story is aimed at engaging local communities, businesses and visitors in order to highlight our borough as a place we are proud of and which is welcoming to all.

Our borough has so much to offer and with this exciting programme we look forward to working with our local communities and businesses and invite everyone to join in our programme of discovery. With our first event in May, starting with the first of a series of historical talks, we have something the whole community can engage in, explore and enjoy.

Due to COVID-19 government restrictions, event details may vary and some activities may take place online. We encourage you to view the latest information here on events and activities, and follow our social media channels for all the latest coverage.
