The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council Councillor Brenda Chivers said: “These engagement events are an important part of preparations for The 148th Open and traders from all sectors and towns should come along to find out more. It’s set to be the biggest sporting occasion ever held here, attracting tens of thousands of spectators so it’s vital that we provide the best possible experience.

“This is our penultimate business engagement session before The Open takes place in July so it’s imperative that traders make full use of this to ensure they are positioned to maximise the opportunity.

“The Claret Jug created much excitement when we hosted it at our annual Sports Awards back in November and we are delighted to showcase it once again as the countdown to The Open gathers pace.”
