  • Belfast City Hall exterior

    Belfast City Hall is a Grade A listed building. We use white light to illuminate the exterior most of the time, which is best for highlighting the building's beautiful architectural features.

    Our LED lighting system at City Hall reduces our energy costs and allows us to light up the building in various colours and combinations.
