A colourful canopy of umbrellas is now in place at Dunluce Street with a second underway at Lower Cross Street.

The unique display of urban art is being put in place ahead of the launch of Larne Spring Festival on March 29.

This is a six-week programme of events, running in association with Larne Traders’ Forum and Larne Renovation Generation.
