11 nights of Belfast City Hall lights in March

20140402-172323.jpgSince the new lighting system was installed in the City Hall, the beautiful and historic building has become a colourful and popular sight at night. It has helped raise awareness for many charities and celebrated key events in the Belfast calendar.

It’s easy to forget the display is happening and then you pass the City Hall, all lit up, and wonder what it’s lit up for. If you want to know more about the schedule of lighting, check out our calendar below.
