4. Do you have a ‘Bridge Story’ to tell?

The Coleraine community will have the chance to rediscover the history of the local area through storytelling in a three-day festival taking place over the Easter weekend.

The Bridge of Stories Community Festival has been organised by Radius Housing and Big Telly Theatre Company and will tell local stories from both sides of the Old Bridge, that straddles the Bann and connects the town.

With so much history in the area around the bridge, the festival aims to bring people together to hear the stories, which are told by local people and reflect the rich heritage of the area.

Events at the festival will include Story in a Boat, where the audience will be treated to tales from a local boat owner on the River Bann, a Wishing Bridge, where members of the community can write their own wishes on ribbons that will be tied in the foot bridge, and audio journeys that can be listened to as you walk across the bridge.

The programme of activity on the Old Bridge will take place between 11am and 4pm on Saturday 16, Monday 18 and Tuesday 19 April.
