Impact – Armagh’s Train Disaster

Thurs 27-Sat 29 Oct | 8.00pm [3.00pm Sat matinee] | £15.00 | £13.00 [conc]

The popular Sunday school excursion to Warrenpoint began with a band parade from the Methodist church in Abbey Street, through the town to the Railway Station.

It was a sunny morning on the 12th of June 1889 when some 1200 excited children and adults thronged the station platforms in anticipation of a day by the sea. Little did they think that the day would result in at least 89 deaths and over 400 injured.

Armagh Theatre Group, with an original script, retells the tragic events of that fateful day.

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.
