As part of its major exhibition in 2019, the Museum of Orange Heritage would like to highlight the role and importance of the marching bands community in Ulster.

To this end, the Orange Institution is appealing for information about all individual bands, from all genres, across Northern Ireland and the border counties.

Such content will form an integral part of the wider ‘For Singing and For Dancing’ exhibition at Schomberg House, Belfast, opening this summer; focusing on the music, poetry and ballad traditions of the Orange family.

To ensure that the museum includes as many marching bands as possible, it is requesting the following information: name of band, type of band, date of formation and a brief history.

As part of the appeal, it would also be most beneficial to include any archive or current photographs of the respective band.

Please email all information and images to; or alternatively, contact the museum on 028 9070 1122.

All submissions will be acknowledged, and the content used solely for educational and display purposes.
