Orange Order on show at Balmoral
Thursday, May 10, 2018

The Orange Institution has confirmed it will be making its presence felt at the Balmoral Show next week.

The loyal order will once again have a trade stand at Northern Ireland’s largest agri-food event, showcasing the Institution to the wider public.

The premier agricultural gathering takes place at Balmoral Park, Lisburn, from Wednesday until Saturday.

As well as promoting both Museums of Orange Heritage in Belfast and Loughgall, Grand Lodge representatives and staff will be on hand to provide more information regarding the Institution’s outreach and activities.

Chief executive Iain Carlisle said the Institution was delighted to be returning to Balmoral, now in its 150th year.

He said: “We are pleased to once again be returning to one of Northern Ireland’s largest and most established annual events, and to proactively engage with members of the public about the Orange cultural tradition and heritage. Feedback from our previous involvement at the show was immensely positive, and we hope to build on such success in 2018.”

The Institution is returning to the show following an absence of three years, having exhibited most recently in 2015.

The Grand Lodge outreach stand will be located at EK120, inside the Eikon Shopping Village.
