A list of events are due to run from May 2017 through to September 2018,

Some 12 different events have been planned to be held over the 17-month period,
which include a Favourite Hymns Service, local garden tour,
visits to Cathedrals in Armagh, Londonderry and Dublin, concerts, table quiz, a family fun day
and a culminating weekend-long Flower Festival in September 2018.
