The 2013 Maiden City Festival will ‘Celebrate Diversity’ once again. The event is the prelude to the Annual Relief of Londonderry Commemorations. This will be a packed week of performance in music, dance and drama within and around the historic Walled City, celebrating history & heritage, community and diversity. There will be a series of events throughout 2013 building on the year round nature of the Festival through our expansive social media.
Special events throughout the year and during the week of the Festival will celebrate the music of the flute, so much part of the city’s cultural musicality, and discussion and debate arising from dramatic presentation of history. A major academic conference will be held in late Spring on the period 1688-1689 – before, during and the consequences. On a lighter note the festival will host the first ever Line Dance Championship to be held in Northern Ireland.
