Stoneyford Eleventh night celebrations

In Stoneyford on the Eleventh Night

In Stoneyford on the Eleventh Night

The Stoneyford beacon blazed brightly on the village, as residents welcomed in the glorious Twelfth.

This year Stoneyford Jubilee Committee rose to the challenge yet again when they successfully organised another Eleventh Night in the village.

The annual Twelfth celebrations kicked off in style at the War Memorial with a rousing performance by the Pride of the Village Stoneyford Flute Band.

Throughout the evening, the ladies of the committee organised a barbecue.

There was an added attraction this year with the appearance of the Lambeg drums and everyone was encouraged to have a go.

There was a truly spectacular fireworks display accompanied by a lone Lambeg drummer, which proved to be an extremely popular addition to the programme.

The crowd were totally enthralled at what they were witnessing and particularly enjoyed the opportunity to participate in the finale of the display.

The evening’s festivities culminated in the lighting of the traditional Stoneyford beacon by former Lisburn City Mayor Cecil Calvert.
