2012 is earmarked to be remarkable in Northern Ireland, with a host of spectacular events, celebrations and launches happening throughout the year.

A year-round programme of events is now in place to create an inspirational celebration of Northern Ireland, not least the Titanic Belfast Festival 2012 (31 March - 22 April) which is just about to begin.

Craft NI is looking forward to the best August Craft Month to date, taking Made in Northern Ireland, as the theme to tie in with the wider celebrations. We are currently compiling what looks to be an outstanding programme.

If you would like to learn more about the full round of events involved in ni2012, and, for those who organise events and activities, how to make the best of this year's extraordinary wealth of major events see: ni2012 Industry Factsheet.
