About Us

Welcome to www.whatsonni.com

Whatsonni was created by Jacqueline McGonigle, a mid ulster mother of three in 2009.  The website went live in June 2009 and has gone from strength to strength.  It was created to be a free web based platform for event organisers to promote their event free of charge – thereby creating a current, searchable events list for all types and sizes of events across Northern Ireland. Looking for somewhere to go, something to do or have an event to promote? Then you have come to the right place!

To keep up to date with Jacqueline and whatsonni.com on a regular basis please go to






Organisers are invited to list their event for free - on the home page click on register here. Complete the short registration form (free) , choose your own password and you are ready to list your event by category, location and date. You will receive an email confirming your username and password.

You can list events up to a year before they take place and you can list as many events as you like. No need to delete your event listing as once the event date has passed it will automatically drop off our system.

Included in the basic listing you will be able to upload an image/flyer.  If you would like to see your listing in a highlighted box and guaranteed a mention on our social media pages, check the tick box.  This only costs £15 and is payable via paypal. 

Don't forget to add your web link if you have one and an email address to enable users to contact you.

If you have a marketing budget perhaps you would like to see your event on our home page as our "Featured Event of the Week".
