See your hometown in a new light

StoryTrails, a unique, multimedia storytelling experience, is coming to Omagh on 1 - 2 July.

It offers you the opportunity to experience Omagh in a completely new way by using technology to bring hidden stories of your town to life. Drop into Omagh Library, 1 Spillars Place and try out a range of different immersive and virtual reality experiences or go on a guided tour of your town with the StoryTrails app as your tour guide.

In Omagh, the augmented reality app reveals the untold history of the reasons why people have left the town through 6 decades of Omagh’s history, from the closure of the railway to lack of employment opportunities. We also hear from locals who are optimistic about the future of Omagh!

The tour is narrated by local tourist guide Vincent Brogan, whose daughter Cat created the storyguide

Time travellers need no previous technical experience and electronic mobile devices can be borrowed for the tour if you don’t have your own.

All activities are completely free so just turn up and join in.
