Event Details

To mark the 400th anniversary of Lisburn Cathedral in 2023, the museum launched a new exhibition, Lisburn Cathedral: 400 Years. Packed with documents, photographs and original artefacts from the museum and the cathedral’s collections, this exhibition offers up a social history of the cathedral and the town which grew up around it.

The exhibition features special displays on:

  • The early history of Lisburn, including establishment of the Church of St Thomas on the site of the present-day cathedral.
  • The role of the Huguenots in the economic, social and religious life of Lisburn.
  • The growth of the congregation in the 19th century as Lisburn’s industrial importance grew.
  • The windows and monuments of the cathedral.
  • Some of the congregation’s most prominent figures.
  • The at times turbulent 20th century.
  • A special model of the cathedral and surrounding buildings made especially for the 400th anniversary
