The Ballance House is a restored farmhouse and museum set in a lovely rural location near Glenavy; the birthplace of John Ballance, a former prime minister of New Zealand.  He went on to have a huge impact on life in New Zealand, gaining the vote for women (a world first) and campaigning for the rights of Maori people.  The Ulster New Zealand Trust, an independent charity, is tasked with the preservation and maintenance of this Victorian property which has an authentically restored 19th century Parlour and many unique artefacts.  Our exhibition brings to life the linkages and lives of people from Ulster and New Zealand.  We open on Sunday afternoons to the public for guided tours and afternoon tea is available in our tea barn.  Groups are most welcome by arrangement.    On Sunday 15 September 2019, the House and Ulster-New Zealand exhibition will be open to the public from 2-5 pm.  Guides will be on-hand in the House to make your visit informative and interesting.  The tea barn will be serving afternoon tea.
