2021 is the centenary year of Northern Ireland.                                                                                                                                       

Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council is developing a programme of events and initiatives to mark this historic occasion.


The programme aims to:

Promote the Borough as an attractive place to visit, invest and do business;

Celebrate our people, places and products by showcasing the rich sporting, cultural, entrepreneurial and academic talent;

Build a shared understanding of our collective history in a way that can build good relations and reconciliation by facilitating opportunities that both reflect on our past as well as build for our future; and

Recognise and build awareness of this significant anniversary, locally, nationally and internationally, supporting expression of the diverse identities and culture that exist within the Borough.


The four key themes are:

Heritage and Culture;

Great Northern Ireland Minds and Innovation;

Sport & Wellbeing and Community Development; and

Food, Drink and Entertainment.
