Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, Councillor Michelle Knight-McQuillan launched the new Cultural Services Programme for summer on Thursday 21st April.
The programme runs in Council’s museums, art centres and other venues across the area. In a programme packed with exhibitions, events and creative learning opportunities there is something for everyone to take part in.
The Mayor said, “I would encourage all our local families and visitors to take advantage of the tremendous range of cultural activity being delivered in our area over the summer – film, music, history, creative writing, arts, crafts and photography plus so much more’.
“Some of the events and classes get booked up quickly so make use of this programme to get in early so you don’t miss out’.
Explore exhibitions on; the influential events of 1916; the thrill of the NW200; the fascinating ‘Irish History Starts here’; the way we were in ‘Limavady Sporting Life’; ‘A flash of Brilliance: glass, Ceramics and Silver’; and the enigmatic ‘Beautiful Creatures’ of Emily Carew Woodward.
