Walled City 400

March 2019 will mark the 400th anniversary of the completion of the Walls.

To maximise this opportunity, Derry City & Strabane District Council and its partner The Honourable, The Irish Society, the builders and owners of the Walls and The Department for Communities' Historic Environment Division, have identified Walled City 400 Years as a key theme for events programming from September 2018 to March 2020.

A full and vibrant programme for this significant heritage led anniversary has been developed featuring an eclectic range of musical ensembles, dance audio plays, historical and contemporary exhibitions, symposiums, films, living archaeology demonstrations and workshops, visual arts exhibitions and much more!
