Date Posted: 26/10/12
The series of events to take place in Londonderry in 2013 to mark its UK City of Culture award have been announced.
Those on short breaks in the city are in with a chance of catching various cultural attractions, including the Turner Prize, the London Symphony Orchestra and the Royal Ballet.
Kicking things off will be a special Sons and Daughters of Derry concert, while Frank Cottrell Boyce will also devise a performance piece to take place on the River Foyle.
Martin Bradley, chairman of the Culture Company, told the BBC the city has enjoyed, and will continue to see, a "physical and psychological transformation".
The Sons and Daughters concert will take place on Sunday, January 20th and is described as celebrating the city's vast musical history.
With the concert being broadcast live by the BBC, Mr Bradley said that "all eyes are watching us to see how we do".
