Coleraine 400 festival day takes place tomorrow (Saturday) in Coleraine Town Centre with a very exciting programme.

The day commences with the Causeway Specialty Market from 9am.

From 11am there will be one of two historical tours of the town starting off from Coleraine Town Hall.

At 12-30pm a special mid summer’s carnival parade will make its way through Coleraine, with some very exciting carnival pieces and up to 150 children from the local schools and Girl Guide fraternity being involved.

The afternoon continues with live music in the town centre and the opportunity to visit, ‘The Project of Plantation’ exhibition, in Coleraine Town Hall. The festival day comes to a close at Christie Park with a live concert, children’s street theatre and a fireworks extravaganza over the River Bann to mark what took place 400 years ago and how the Borough has changed during the 400 years, establishing the town and Borough of Coleraine as we know it today.
