About The Event
Orangeism has a material cultural tradition dating back to before the formal creation of the Orange Institution in September 1795. Regalia, banners, keep sakes and flags have long been a feature of this tradition, with many early items embodying the message and symbolism of the Glorious Revolution.
This temporary exhibition, on loan from the Museum of Orange Heritage, will allow visitors to explore this aspect of Orange tradition; find out more about the order and the symbolism used on many of these items.
The exhibition will run from Monday 5th August 2019 until Thursday 8th August 2019 between 10am - 3pm.
