Lidl at the Tall Ships

Lidl have hosted a successful event on board the Sorlandet at Belfast Harbour during the 2015 Belfast Tall Ships Race.

Organised by Sail Training International, up to 80 vessels, including an estimated 20 striking square-rigged Tall Ships, are in Belfast until Sunday July 5 for the event, doubling the number that came in 2009.

Some 500,000 people are expected to visit the city’s docks for the four-day maritime festival.

The ships will go on to visit six ports in five countries over the course of the competition.

There are two main sites in Belfast: the River Lagan beside the Titanic Quarter, and at Pollock Dock near Duncrue Street.
