Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, working with the Royal British Legion, has developed a programme of free events to mark the centenary of World War One. The programme will culminate in a series of co-ordinated beacon lighting ceremonies to mark the events of Armistice Day in November.

Exhibitions, dramatic performances, concerts and military displays will combine to tell the story of the Great War and how it came to an end 100 years ago.
