East Belfast MP Gavin Robinson has encouraged applications to the £1million Shared History Fund available to groups marking the centenary.

He said, "The slogan marking the Northern Ireland Office's programme of events is particularly appropriate. The centenary is not just about looking back to what has been achieved over the last 100 years, but looking ahead to Northern Ireland's second century.

The Shared History Fund is available to support the engagement of a wide range of arts, heritage, community and other organisations in marking the centenary. I would encourage any interested group to explore the opportunities presented by this fund before applications close on 15th January 2021. There are grants available between £3,000 and £100,000.

Northern Ireland's centenary is something that will be marked right across the UK, but obviously the main focus will be here at home. It is something that has affected the lives of every person living here and the future of Northern Ireland really is "our story in the making".
