City of Culture News

The city of Derry-Londonderry has a big year ahead. It has just months to squeeze in all the festivals, gigs, musicals, plays and special events it has planned for its reign as UK City of Culture 2013

In every corner of the city, along the Peace Bridge and through the historic Ebrington Barracks – Derry-Londonderry is buzzing.

Huge events are set to shake the city this year. There’s a bounty of firsts in store, including the Turner Prize and the Royal Ballet coming to town, and the sweet sounds of the Fleadh Cheoil, Other Voices and Teenage Kicks: A Punk Musical. In between these big hitters are hundreds of other events, from plays to matches, gigs to exhibitions.
