Hillstown Orange Hall will host a new history programme for people of all ages who have an interest in the Orange Order and its history and cultural traditions.

It is a programme spread over two weeks and will commence this Thursday (October 2) at 7.30pm in Hillstown Orange Hall.

Each of the sessions is information based and the aim of the ‘Educating Ourselves’ Programme is to inform individuals about the Glorious Revolution, the formation and early years of the Orange Institution, the development of Orangeism and the Orange Order today. On completion, participants will receive a certificate.

Educating Ourselves is not only for members of the Orange Order but is also for the wider Orange Family, wives, sons, daughters, aunts, uncles, cousins, bands people and community volunteers.

The sessions at Hillstown will be taken by David Scott (Community Education Officer of the Grand Orange Lodge of Ireland and Dr Jonathan Mattison (STRIPE Project Manager).

Admission is free and light refreshments will be served. For further information please contact 07900608685.
