Registration and opening ceremony
Belfast City Hall
Our first event takes place in the wonderful surroundings of the Belfast City Hall on the afternoon of Thursday September 23rd from 3:00 pm-5:00 pm.
Belfast City Hall is the civic headquarters of Belfast City Council. We will have a drinks reception here in The Rotunda, hosted by the Council. The Rotunda is one of the most spectacular areas in City Hall. Encased in Italian and Greek marble, it overlooks the main entrance to the building and is nestled below the central copper dome which crowns City Hall, 53 metres above. The most important feature in the space is the stunning mural by local artist John Luke, from 1951, which depicts the city in 1613 and pays tribute to the industries on which the success of Belfast would later be founded.
2-10 Fisherwick Place.
