Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council has marked the New Year by launching its latest arts, museums and heritage events guide.

It covers a diverse range of exhibitions, music and theatre events between January to March.

The guide also features a brilliant creative learning and outreach programme with a feast of workshops, courses and projects for both children and adults.

It was launched this month by the Mayor, Alderman Maura Hickey. She said: “Our Cultural Services team has put together a fantastic range of events to mark the first quarter of the New Year. We are fortunate to have a great choice of venues right across the borough, which will be used for everything from children’s arts workshops, exhibitions, readings and creative learning experiences. The arts sector is an important part of our Council’s offering and I would encourage everyone to pick up a guide and start planning their own cultural calendar for the months ahead. There really is something for everyone”
