Derry to host new Lifelong Learning Festival from May 18th to 24th

  • The Derry City and Strabane District Council is currently looking for submissions for fun learning events to be showcased as part of its first ever Lifelong Learning Festival.

    From May 18th to 24th, Derry City will be transformed into a celebration of learning and community fun as Learning City's Lifelong Learning Festival kicks off. The event will involve dozens of events across the city what will be open to all citizens and free to attend, showcasing some of the fun learning activities and events available in the region.

    The individual events will range from open lectures and public historical tours to free taster sessions of courses and workshops run in buildings across the city. Organisers are currently seeking community groups, individuals, workplaces, schools and colleges across the region who want to run fun events as part of the festival.

    Events can be held indoors or outdoors, and can involve any subject at all as long as there's a learning component to it. Examples might include classes on digital skills, events immersing the public in science, art, or history, educational children’s activities and family events, or business-focused presentations.

    If you or your organisation have an idea for an event you'd like to run as part of the Derry City and Strabane Lifelong Learning Festival, head over to the event page for details on how to apply. The deadline for submitting your event is Friday 31st January by 4:00pm.
