Derry chosen as UK City of Culture 2013

Derry has been chosen as the UK’s first City of Culture.

The announcement was broadcast live from Liverpool on the BBC’s The One Show last night.

Derry, which was short-listed alongside Birmingham, Sheffield and Norwich, will take the mantle in 2013.

Creative Advisor for the city of Culture Team, Noelle McAlinden, says its great news, and she says we could see events like the Brits Awards come to Derry in 2013.
