The North East area is one of our largest geographical areas. It begins at Newtownabbey just outside Belfast stretches North to Ballymoney and West to Magherafelt. It includes major areas such as Ballymena, Carrickfergus, Ballycastle and Antrim. It’s major border town is Coleraine, which falls into the North West area.
Our North East Trade Fair will take place at the Abbey Centre, Newtownabbey on Thursday 2 February. All our student companies from the area will set up their stalls to sell their products to the public! Don’t miss it!
