This wonderful showband memorabilia exhibition evokes the musical back-drop to people’s lives during the 1960s and 70s. The material collected by local enthusiast Philip Darcy captures the atmosphere of the showband era. It details the emergence of early dance bands and showbands which will take you on a delightful trip down memory lane!

Free Admission


Every week National Lottery players raise over £30 million for good cause projects, like ours. That's why we’re pleased to be taking part in National Lottery Open Week, which celebrates the contribution of National Lottery players in supporting good causes over the past 29 years.

To thank National Lottery players for their support, we will be offering free admission to the 'Remembering the Showbands' Exhibition from 8 - 18 March 2024.

Anyone who presents any National Lottery ticket (digital or physical), scratchcard, or Instant Win Game, on these dates will be able to take up this special offer.

As a recipient of National Lottery funding, we have been able to develop our Enniskillen Castle site with new galleries and new events.

The National Lottery supports good cause projects in the areas of arts, education, environment, health, heritage, sport and community. Over the past 29 years, National Lottery players have raised more than £45 billion for projects which are making a huge difference to lives of people and communities.

We are one of many participating National Lottery-funded projects who are proud to be taking part in National Lottery Open Week, coming together to say #ThanksToYou to the players with special offers.
