‘Impact’ depicts the tragic events which occurred on a sunny morning in Armagh on the 12th of June 1889, when some 1200 excited children and adults thronged the town’s railway station platforms in anticipation of a day by the sea.

The popular Sunday school excursion to Warrenpoint began with a jovial band parade, from the Methodist church in Abbey Street, through the town to the Railway Station, but it was to be a journey that would end in disaster, and one from which 89 people would never return.

Presented by one of Northern Ireland’s leading amateur theatre groups.

This event takes place in our Studio Theatre with an unreserved, tiered seating layout
