Ulster Covenant table on display at Belfast City Hall exhibition
The table on which the Ulster Covenant was signed forms part of a new Â£1.3 million exhibition at Belfast City Hall.
The attraction was officially opened on Tuesdayy, bringing together artefacts from the traditions and cultures that shaped Belfast in a narrative agreed by all party leaders.
The city council says the self-guided visitor experience on the ground floor of the city hall fulfils its ambition to make the building more inclusive and welcoming.
A tour of the 16 exhibition rooms gives a comprehensive history of Belfast’s formation both in terms of industrial growth and its politics.
The dark and light of the city is reflected with rooms that feature the Troubles, the Titanic tragedy and the distinct dialect of Belfast.
