The main parade will get underway at 12.30pm, leaving the assembly field at Drumgose Road onto the Derryfubble Road and following a route along Main Street out of the village, through the Moyard Crossroads to the field.
The Platform proceedings will get underway at 2.30pm, with Deputy Grand Master Bro. Harold Henning, Grand Master Royal Arch Purple Chapter or Ireland; Bro. Robin Kyle, Grand Chaplin Rev. David Reid and Grand Mistress Sister Joan Beggs taking part.
