European Heritage Open Day at PRONI

PRONI will be opening its doors to visitors on Saturday 8 September, from 10am until 4pm, as part of European Heritage Open Day. There will be introductory talks and tours of PRONI's exhibition and building, offering visitors a behind the scenes look at what goes on within the repository. Newcomers to PRONI will be given a real flavour of the records held, which range from government files to private archives such as church registers.

At noon, visitors will have the chance to meet Lord Carson, as actor, Paddy Scully, puts on a one-man performance in the building, a must see for drama and history enthusiasts.

Here's the programme for the day:
There are no costs associated with visiting and enjoying any of these events. However, visitors are asked to bring photographic ID with them when they attend. Due to availability, visitors wishing to see the 'Meet Lord Carson' performance, are advised to email PRONI in advance.

PRONI is located in the Titanic Quarter of Belfast.
