Environment Minister Mark H Durkan has invited everyone in Lisburn and the surrounding areas to enjoy the European Heritage Open Days weekend on September 12 and 13.

History and culture will be brought to life with historic properties opening across Lisburn, Hillsborough and Moira.

All events are free of charge and many are family friendly.

“Established favourites like the Ballance House and Ballinderry War Memorial Hall will again feature alongside living history events and walking tours which will bring heritage alive for visitors,” said Mr Durkhan.

“Enjoy a historic guided walk around Hillsborough or a demonstration on the historic art of stained-glass making at CWS Studio.

“Young or old, on your doorstep or further afield, there is something for you.

“I urge everyone to join in this year and take advantage of this unique opportunity to celebrate our heritage.

“Whilst all events are free there are some that require pre-booking and a few that have already reached capacity so check out”
