New Arts and Events Guide launched
Wed, April 26, 2017
Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council has launched its latest Arts Guide for the spring season.
It covers a diverse range of exhibitions, music and comical events from April to June.
The guide also features a fantastic creative learning and outreach programme with a feast of workshops, courses and projects for both children and adults.
The launch was attended by the Mayor, Alderman Maura Hickey. She said: “The Cultural Services team have put together another packed programme of events for our region. We are so fortunate to have venues such as Flowerfield Arts Centre and The Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre and there is a fantastic variety of events taking place in both these locations. I would encourage everyone to pick up a guide and start planning their activities for the months ahead.”
