Join us to remember Her Majesty The Queen as a community in Market Square, Lisburn 

Mayor Carson said: “It is important everyone has an opportunity to come together with friends, family and neighbours to remember Queen Elizabeth II who served as the Monarch for over 70 years. Within Market Square we will be livestreaming the arrival of King Charles III in Northern Ireland and the State Funeral of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. We would also like the Lisburn and Castlereagh community to join us for a minute’s silence to remember the long service of The Queen.”
