Plans are well underway for what will be a unique event for Newry and even the entire province when it takes place next month.

Hill Street Festival of Windows
Hill Street Festival of Windows

Northern Ireland's largest Arts and Craft Gallery will run the entire length of Hill Street in Newry with displays in the participating shop windows from Friday the 13th of June to Friday 27th June.

The Hill Street Festival of Windows event will showcase the talents and diversity of Newry's up and coming crafts people and artists as well as  the more established ones.

Students from the SRC Art campus will be taking part and as well as this several shops will have their shutters painted with quality art.

The ethos of the festival is to bring life back to Hill Street, especially after hours and eventually lead to less dependence on shutters on shop frontages.

The Festival is just one of a series of projects started by the new Newry 2020 grassroots campaigning group.
