Council to light Enniskillen Castle and Strule Arts Centre purple for ‘Herstory’ festival

Published: 4th January 2017

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council will illuminate Enniskillen Castle and the Strule Arts Centre, Omagh, purple from Thursday 5 to Sunday 8 January 2017 as part of ‘Herstory’ – a new light projection festival that celebrates women worldwide.

Herstory is a new event which aims to celebrate women and girls from local communities to national and international heroines, and women from history right through to the present day.

Buildings across the island of Ireland will be illuminated as part of the festival as the Christmas lights go out over the weekend of Nollaig na mBan (Women’s Little Christmas).

The festival organisers hope that this year’s Herstory celebration is the start of a new annual event ‘where Ireland inspires the world to celebrate women every year…inspiring countries to strive for global equality’.

The Herstory festival was founded by Melanie Lynch and is produced by Lesley Tully, Head of Design Thinking at Bank of Ireland and Founder of Illuminate Dublin. For further information on Herstory please visit www.herstory.ie.
