Not wanting to sound too fancy or anything… but on behalf of the Lord Mayor of Belfast and I (ahem), a massive welcome to join us in the Titanic Quarter as Belfast plays its part in marking International Peace Day.
We’ll gather at 7pm at the beautiful old Harland and Wolff Drawing Offices (an experience in itself if you haven’t been inside before) for a performance from a combined Peace Choir.
Then we’ll proceed as the sun sets out onto the Titanic Slipways, where we’ll find the largest map of the Northern Hemisphere in the world (it’s marked on the paving around the Titanic Belfast building) and hold a candlelit vigil for the parts of that map currently suffering conflict or turmoil.
Practicalities: car parking is available in the open-air car park directly opposite the Drawing Offices, tea and coffee will be served at Dock Cafe, and bring a wooly jumper as we’l be heading outside whatever the weather!
(PS can anyone spot a little detail in that pic which betrays the fact that it’s a few years old? More on the changing face of TQ next week!)
