Derry City Council is to host a Hallowe’en Ball in the Guildhall this year as part of the City of Culture celebrations.

Sinn Féin councillor Elisha McCallion, chair of the Council’s development committee, said the ball will be held in the main hall of the newly refurbished Guildhall on October 31.

“We have seen the success of the many events held throughout 2013 and now the addition of a Hallowe’en Ball in the Guildhall can hopefully be added to that growing list.

“To have the ball on the 31st October in the main newly refurbished civic building right in the heart of the city centre on one of the biggest nights of the year is a great idea,” she said.
