Third annual Day of Reflection to be held at City Hall

Date: 14 Jun 2024

City Hall illuminated in yellow at dusk.

A Day of Reflection will again take place at Belfast City Hall on Friday 21 June.

Councillors had previously agreed that the event would be held annually, providing an opportunity for people and communities across the city to acknowledge the deep hurt and pain caused by the conflict in and about Northern Ireland.

Next week’s event follows a similar format to previous events held in 2022 and 2023.

Visitors can call in, 6pm-8.30pm, to engage in quiet reflection, take part in creative arts, listen to a selection of poetry and readings and speak to representatives from a range of support organisations. 

There will be a screening of a short film by local organisation Healing Through Remembering at 6pm.

Attendees can also share their hopes for the future by adding a leaf, with a personal message, to a ‘Thought Tree’, throughout the evening.

No booking is required, and everyone is welcome.

City Hall will also be illuminated in yellow on the evening of Friday 21 June.
