The distinctive and unique sound of the Lambeg drum will be very apparent at this year’s Triangle Combine Parade, being held in Ahoghill.

The village is expected to play host to the largest contingent of the acoustic instrument on parade throughout the Province, with impromptu drumming sessions adding to the carnival atmosphere.

A total of 16 lodges – accompanied by nine bands – will take part in the close-knit demonstration, which is held on other years in Cullybackey and Portglenone.

The main parade is due to commence from the Galgorm Road (main Ballymena line)/ Killane Road junction at 12.30pm, and then proceed towards the village centre via the Portglenone line, Glebe Road, Church Street, through the Diamond area to the Village Playing Fields on the Cullybackey Road.

The guest speaker on the day will be Rev Sherrard McKay, chaplain of Cullybackey District.
