Derry City and Strabane District Council will share a series of virtual tours, videos and exhibitions which explore the heritage and history of the Council area.

We will touch on exhibitions such as– 'If Stones Could Speak- The Archaeological Landscape of Tyrone' and 'The Fair River Valley – Strabane through the Ages' exhibition. ‘The Walled City 400 Years’ exhibition which features some of the most fascinating archives and archaeological collections relating to the history of the city from the completion of the walls in 1619 to the present day. ‘The Thundering Guns of Derry’ exhibition will provide insight into how the Cannon on the famous City Walls were used, lost and restored and will complement the programme of repairs and refurbishment to the cannon carriages which will take place over the summer months.

The Heritage Week virtual tours of the Guildhall will uncover the building's many hidden gems, including its grand staircase, main hall organ, collection of stunning stained glass windows, and the Guildhall clock and tower.

We will also share some of our past heritage projects such as our short animation ‘Oh City City on the Foyle’ which explores the history of the famous Walled City showing how it has grown and changed over the centuries from its early settlers all the way through to the modern city we have today. A beautiful and captivating piece of work which weaves together the passage of time with the physical fabric of the city we know and interact with today.
