A Very Heritage Christmas: Irish Winter Customs by Dr Marion McGarry

December 4 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join Ulster Architectural Heritage, supported by Belfast City Council, for a fascinating talk & Q&A from Dr Marion McGarry on Irish winter customs, who will be joining us via video link from Galway. Marion will be focussing particularly on the traditional celebration of Christmas and Advent. The event will be broadcast via zoom from 11am.

Sadly, due to circumstances beyond our control we have had to cancel the in-person portion of the event at the Old Museum Building.

FREE and Open to All (Booking Essential)
