Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council's Centenary Programme

Here you will find the latest updates on the events and projects planned by Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council in the Centenary year. Check back regularly for updates on how to get involved.

This is the start of our Centenary programme and more events will be announced in due course. 



Grants of up to £400 are available to community and voluntary groups who want to get involved and deliver events or projects related to the Centenary of Northern Ireland.

The Irish Linen Centre and Lisburn Museum (ILCLM) are excited to host a range of historical talks by renowned speakers on a range of Centenary related topics.

The format of the lecture programme will be dependant on current public health guidance at the time and is likely to involve a number of virtual options.

We know there are wonderful people in our communities who were born 100 years ago. We want to recognise these special people, find out more abput their lives and present them with Centenary gift.

The Mayor would like to hear from residents who were born on or before the year 1921 to celebrate 100 years of their life. Details of how to submit a name will be announced soon.




In addition to recognising our older citizens in our society, we also want to recognise new life as part of the Centenary. As part of our Centenary babies programme we will present a special gift to babies born in the Centenary month of May 2021. 




The Council is planting 100 red twigged lime trees in various locations across the Lisburn & Castlereagh area. The twigs go a lovely reddish colour in the winter. This species is a fairly fast growing tree that can grow to 12m high by 6m wide after 25 years. This same type of tree currently lines the main avenue at the Stormont Estate.



Using the theme and logo for the Centenary programme, flowerbeds will be planted at Castle Gardens and Moat Park.
