Larne Museum & Arts Centre is pleased to present a programme of 40th anniversary events commemorating the life of local man John Clifford, the first curator of Larne Museum, who passed away on 8 October 1983.

John left Larne in 1937 to take up a civil service post in London, where he became a professional actor. He returned to Larne 30 years later.

Lolly Spence of Stone Circle Consulting, historian, author and tour guide, presents this talk commemorating John Clifford, a well-known and highly respected citizen of Larne.

“John was a man of many talents. From rural farmhand to London-based thespian and civil servant, from prominent citizen of Larne to Ulster’s “Pensioner of the Year,” his life was full of colour, interests and friendship.”

Places are limited and should be booked in advance by calling Larne Museum on T: 028 2826 2443 or E:
