Enniskillen Castle Celebrates King’s Coronation

Enniskillen Castle Celebrates King’s Coronation

Join ‘The Big Community Paddle, Picnic and Volunteer Village’ at Enniskillen Castle on Bank Holiday Monday 8th May from 11.00am to 5.00pm.

‘Big’ is no exaggeration - a lot is happening - and everyone is invited to join in!

With its unique island location Enniskillen is hosting one of the most westerly Coronation celebrations in the UK with free admission to Enniskillen Castle Museums. The day will be packed with live music and entertainment for all the family.

There’s something for everyone - traditional cookery, weaving, boating, steam engine and heritage demonstrations and children’s craft activities.

Visit the Kindness Postbox; listen to the Fermanagh Concert Band; watch The Erne Hyland Dancers and enjoy the historic venue on an historic day!

Adding to the already ample supply of friendship, food and fun, BBC Radio Ulster will be broadcasting live from the Castle throughout the day. 

Everyone is encouraged to make a day of it, bring a picnic and become part of the ‘The Big Coronation Lunch’ in the company of BBC Presenters Connor Philips, Hugo Duncan and Lynette Fay.

A special highlight of the day is 'The Big Community Paddle’ organised by the RNLI.

This is a unique opportunity to support the local volunteer lifeboat crew, raising funds by paddling around the historic island town in a canoe, kayak or paddle board.

Enniskillen RNLI invites individual paddlers as well as sporting, charity, community and business groups to register for this spectacular flotilla on Lough Erne and to be part of ‘The Big Help Out’.
