On Saturday, I wondered whether there was anything child-friendly happening in and around Lisburn. While the Farmers’ Market is now on holiday until the spring, the city centre management company has been know to run events and activities for little people and their willing parents. It wasn’t yet time for the regular trip to the library, and while I could hear the Ulster Museum calling, it seemed a shame to pass up something fun nearer to home in the
town city centre.
So off to Lisburn City Council’s tourism site – visitlisburn.com.
More than half way through January and it’s obvious: Lisburn must have abandoned culture and entertainment for 2010. Cost cutting? Blew all the budget on the ice rink? Forgot to ask someone to update the website?
First event in the 2010 calendar is a Garden Show in Hillsborough between 21-23 May, and then you’ve got to wait until sometime in the summer for the Highland Games in Wallace Park.
We went to the Ulster Museum and checked that the mummy was still sleeping!
Update - 21 January - The Visit Lisburn website has been updated - restyled - though there still aren't any January events other than visiting Hilden Brewery which is a hangover (excuse the pun) from December!
