The Unionist Centenary Committee held a workshop recently to establish what the community wants to do in 2021.

 UCC 2021 Planning Workshop - October 2017

People from across Northern Ireland and from across the Unionist community gathered in the Park Avenue Hotel recently to firstly learn about the partition of Ireland and then to discuss what we thought should happen to mark it's centenary.

Just under 70 people heard from David Hagan UCC Chair, Jim Brownlee Governor of the ABOD, Deirdre McBride, CRC and the historian Philip Orr before they watched a short drama written and produced by Blue Eagle Productions. After that it was down to some work facilitated by the Junction . 

It was a very productive morning with a real buzz aboutthe wirkshop with attendees producing plenty of ideas.  A draft report from the Junction has since been received and stakeholders have taken it away for perusal and comment.
