Arts Council Northern Ireland Pulls Funding for Linen Hall Events Programme

19 July 2018

Important-announcement-520x216

The Linen Hall Library has received notification from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland regretfully informing us that our application for funding through its National Lottery Programme Project funding stream has been unsuccessful.

The amount, appoximately £25,000, pays for our popular cultural events programme which includes lectures, exhibitions, performances and readings. This is a vital part of the Library’s output as an organisation that plays a prominent role in Northern Ireland’s cultural and artistic infrastructure.  

The Library is appealing the decision with the Arts Council.

We would be grateful for your help and support. Please write underlining the importance and popularity of the Library’s cultural programme, and how imperative it is that it continues for members and visitors alike:
