Green Lane Museum Saint Patrick's Weekend

Saturday 16th – Monday 18th March, 11.00am – 3.30pm

Storytelling: Janice Witherspoon – Saturday 16th & Monday 18th from 2.00 – 3.00pm and Colin Urwin – Sunday 17th from 2.00 – 3.00pm

Prior to the official opening of Green Lane Museum for the 2024 season, the museum will open for the Saint Patrick’s weekend. Roe Valley Ancestral Researchers, who have again committed to opening the museum this year, are planning a special programme of events, commencing on Saturday 16th March.

Children will have an opportunity to plant wildflowers, sunflowers and flax seeds with Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council’s Biodiversity Officer, Lisa Russell, on Saturday 16th. The kids will also be able to make their own ‘Backyard Nature’ Bug Hotel to take home along with their seeds. Everyone who takes part will be entered into a free draw with a chance to win their very own Bug Hotel!

Children and adults will enjoy hearing storytellers, Janice Witherspoon and Colin Urwin, sharing some of the myths and legends from the Roe Valley and Binevenagh each afternoon from 2.00 – 3.00pm. There will be something for all ages so make sure to call in and you’ll be guaranteed a warm welcome from the RVAR volunteers.

The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens, Councillor Steven Callaghan, will officially open Green Lane Museum for the 2024 season on Friday 29th March.
