Lockhart Welcomes First Minister to Brownlow House to Celebrate Funding Boost

Upper Bann MP Carla Lockhart has hosted a visit by First Minister Paul Givan MLA to Brownlow House, Lurgan, to discuss the continuing development of the venue as a hospitality, tourism and cultural showpiece. The MP also confirmed that Brownlow House had been successful in securing £100,000 from the Dormant Accounts Fund to assist in future development.

Carla Lockhart said:

“Brownlow House is a fantastic venue, and in recent years it has been transformed under the leadership of David Martin and his team.

I want to see this development now reach the next level and to do that, it is important that financial support is provided, and the support of the Northern Ireland Executive is also evident. This is a jewel in the crown of Upper Bann as a hospitality, tourism, and cultural venue, and we need to get support from key funders for the massive potential to Brownlow House to be realised.

This was recognised by my colleague the First Minister, Paul Givan MLA, during the visit and I think he was blown away by the artefacts that are in place at Brownlow.

These are exciting times for Brownlow House, and there is more to come.”
