Event Details

An opportunity to consult Luton Irish Forum's Board of Trustees on:

  • Luton St Patrick's Festival 2018

  • The activities and services of LIF
  • 'Every County has a Story’ special 1916 film

Every single county in Ireland has a connection with the 1916 Rising. In an effort to explore these connections and stories, RTÉ, in partnership with Ireland 2016, embarked on an ambitious project to produce 32 one minute films or shorts – one for every county.

The films explore the individual connections with the events of 1916 in each county or a particular story around the county’s particular commemoration of Easter 1916. This initiative is dedicated to allowing each country tell its own story about how it was touched by this momentous turning point in Ireland’s history.

Luton Irish Forum

Luton Irish Forum (LIF) is a registered charity and limited company formed in 1997, with over 500 members and a fully accessible centre close to Luton Town Centre. Whilst originally set up to safeguard the needs of the Irish residents in Luton, LIF is now a truly representative community organisation serving Luton’s diverse vulnerable and socially excluded people. 

 LIF provides Welfare support through appointments and home visits relating to welfare benefits, housing, debt, applications for an Irish Passport and provides practical support to engage with Ombudsman services, tribunals, courts and appeals. 

LIF coordinates a range of activities, groups and events which raise cultural awareness including St Patrick’s Festival, The Emerald Pipe Band, Cultural Seminars and School Workshops. We promote health and wellbeing and community learning through Keep fit, Irish Language Classes, The Literary Society, The Calligraphy Group, Art Classes and Computer Club. 

LIF facilitates social opportunities through our Elders Project, Baby & Toddler Group and Business LINk. We manage an information website This is Luton for young Irish and Polish people who are considering moving to or who have just arrived in Luton. We also manage Catching the Boat an online archive showcasing the working lives of the Irish that settled in Luton from 1940 to 1960. 

Finally, LIF holds the contract for Healthwatch Luton, an independent consumer champion for health and social care services in Luton, works with partners to provide further opportunities that its members can take advantage of such as yoga, dance, Desmond (group for those with or at risk of Diabetes) and a Polish advice drop-in and casework service and contributes to local and national policy.
