Looking after banners and bannerettes

BALLYMONEY Museum is organising two workshops to assist local institutions and bands in the Borough of Ballymoney with the care of their banners and bannerettes.

Each workshop will provide advice on looking after parade banners or bannerettes and it will be an opportunity to discuss approaches to the long term care of these examples of colourful and traditional cultural regalia.

To accommodate as many participants as possible, two workshops have been scheduled: Ballymoney Town Hall, Saturday 23 March & the Millennium Centre, Loughgiel, Saturday 20 April. Each workshop runs from 11.30am-2.30pm and is open to eight groups; participants must book in advance. A buffet lunch will be provided.

There is no charge for the workshops but booking is essential at the following address: Museum Manager, Ballymoney Museum, Ballymoney Town Hall, BT53 6BE, Tel: 028 2766 0245 or 028 2766 0230 Email: museum@ballymoney.gov.uk
