As the custodians of this place, we want to bring about a step-change that will see Armagh take its primary place in the world again. We are innovative thinkers and we’re also growers – nurturing food, ideas, people and traditions in equal measure. We are proud of our extraordinary heritage, which embraces so many diverse yet interlinked things: science and spirituality, architecture and landscape, literature, art and music. Armagh is truly a place that stimulates the mind, body and soul. As UK City of Culture 2025 we will make our cultural heritage urgent and essential again, turning it into a lasting legacy and capitalizing on it as a true driver for positive change.

Armagh is the First Place, where you can dare to be original.
