Intro July #1

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

This week the team are delighted to share with you the latest online events and experiences from Northern Ireland.

We begin with a short film celebrating the ‘Distant Sky’ music festival which should have been held on Rathlin Island at the summer solstice. The film features artists and writers previously hosted in our Brussels office including Ciara O’Neill and Glenn Patterson. Our newsletter also includes an online archive from Museums Northern Ireland, which showcases  some of the most famous ships built in Belfast, recipes from the fabulous Wee Buns Cookery School, a virtual tour of many of our most well-known landmarks and details on how you can enjoy the Celtronic 2020 Music Festival from the comfort of your own home.

We hope that you are all keeping well and enjoy this week’s newsletter. As always, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Best wishes,

Neal Gartland, Deputy Director
