Looking for something fun and local for the kids to do this summer?
Portadown Heritage Tours are launching a Kids Treasure Trail at Carleton Street Orange Hall. The Trail is available on Tuesday 6th August, Thursday 8th August, Tuesday 13th August, Thursday 15th August and Tuesday 20th August. The Trail will be open from 9:30am until 3:00pm.
Kids Treasure Trail
The Trail covers the ground floor of the Orange Hall. Each room has a different activity to complete as part of the Trail. The Trail is suitable for Primary School aged children and younger children will also enjoy it but they may need some help along the way. Parents and Guardians must stay with children at all times.
Activities on the trail also have an educational element. The activities cover historical topics such as the Formation of the Orange Order, the First World War, The Orange Order in different Countries and Museum investigation. Also we have added a unique element as part of the activities. Portadown Heritage Tours have set up a mock Lodge meeting for the kids to get involved in. The mock Lodge meeting gives a small insight into the Orange Order without giving away trade secrets!
For parents who would like to get their children involved in the Junior Orange, this offers a small insight into a general Lodge Meeting and the Orange Institution as a whole.
The Trail will take approximately an hour to complete. After the Trail is completed Parents/Guardians can take the kids upstairs to the large function room. There they are free to run about in a safe environment. There is lots of games available for them to play. There is also different arts, crafts and colouring activities available.
We also have refreshments available for kids and adults. The trail is priced at £3 per child. To book the trail contact the Portadown Heritage Tours office on 38332010 or search ‘Portadown Heritage Tours’ on Facebook and send us a private message.
