The Government is committed to facilitating national recognition and international awareness of this important national anniversary.

The centenary will be an opportunity to reflect on this moment of profound significance in the history of the United Kingdom, in a way that includes diverse perspectives and facilitates respectful discussion.

It will also offer a platform to showcase what is best about Northern Ireland around the world. The programme of centenary events being developed will therefore celebrate Northern Ireland’s people, business, culture, arts, and young talent, looking forward to a positive future.
