Derry's Bid for UK City of Culture

The Derry-Londonderry bid for UK City of Culture 2013 is due to be delivered to Manchester on Friday and we need your help to get it over the line. Although the bid is currently winging its way to the judges we are gearing up for the final stage – a presentation to the judging panel on 17th June.

We will show the judges how everyone in Northern Ireland has got behind the bid and we still need as much support as possible.

The level of online engagement has been phenomenal and we'll be sharing all your wonderful stories at the presentation.

We'd ask you to keep the online momentum up and this Friday we're hoping for a massive peak in activity which we can use as part of our presentation.

Join us and say Yes for Derry 2013!

On Friday we’d ask you to do the following:

1. Retweet the hash tag #derry2013

2. "Like" us on Facebook » and leave your comments on our page

3. Send our template email to your database or network of friends/colleagues

4. Email us a photo or story of how you've been supporting the bid

13 could be Derry/Londonderry's lucky year and deservedly so. Always a good place to visit, either side of the Foyle. Good luck with the bid!
