Richard Hayward's East Antrim - local heritage exhibition

In association with Paul Clements, travel writer, broadcaster and former BBC journalist, this exhibition looks at the life of Richard Hayward (1892-1964).

Hayward, a popular actor, singer, writer and broadcaster, was born in Southport but was raised in Larne where he lived at Chelmsford Place.

As a pioneering film maker he appeared in the film The Luck of the Irish which was filmed in Glynn in 1935. In his travel books, he opened up an unknown Ireland to thousands of people.

Part of the fabric of life for many people and known all over Ireland, few writers are more closely associated with Larne and East Antrim than Richard Hayward.

The exhibition includes Saturday opening on 16th November and 14th December. This project has received financial support from The Executive Office through Mid and East Antrim Borough Council’s Good Relations Programme.
