City of Culture

Congratulations to Derry-Londonderry in Northern Ireland on beginning its year-long tenure as the first UK City of Culture.

A series of events will take place during 2013 to mark the honour, including hosting the Turner Prize for contemporary art, which will be held outside England for the very first time. The party started in blistering style with a fireworks display on New Year’s Eve.

To get a flavour of what Derry looks like, I hope you enjoy this collection of shots from my visit there in November.
