CANTER on down to the Ulster Folk Museum this weekend, as it hosts the annual Donkey Championship, held in partnership with the Donkey Breed Society, on Saturday, August 3 and Sunday, August 4.
Donkey Weekend welcomes donkeys and their handlers to the museum to demonstrate the adorable animal’s agility in a variety of competitions and games and highlights the role this friendly farm animal has played in Ulster’s rural history.
Visitors can participate in the event too, with a host of activities for children, including egg and spoon races and sack races, alongside food sampling and music.
The museum is open from 10am until 5pm and entry to the event is included in a general admission ticket. For more information, visit www.nmni.com/ whats-on.
