Orange Bands in Liverpool
To be a member of a Loyalist band in the Orange Order, you must be a member of the Orange Order. That means you are a Protestant, and are a member of a private lodge.
Independent Loyalist Bands
With bands connected with the Independent Institution, you do not have to be a member of a lodge but you may wish to be. You must be Protestant.
