Newry City’s Christmas Light switch on
Newry & Mourne District Council in partnership with Newry City Centre Management is delighted to announce that the Christmas Illuminations switch on in Newry City which will take place on Thursday 22nd November with entertainment commencing at 5:00pm, with the official lights switch on at 7:00pm.
Join in the celebrations and enjoy an extra special evening with sparkling entertainment and family fun to mark the arrival of the festive season. The organisers have put together a programme to entertain everyone.
Serenading the crowds with a selection of Christmas favourites will be the Newry Community Band, Bunscoil Iúir Choir, followed by The Nooks. There will be an array of children’s entertainment; Face Painting, Balloon Modelling and Cartoon Characters.
Mayor John McArdle along with special guests and Santa Claus will perform special duties in switching on the lights.
The Charity Santa Fun Run, in aid of PIPS Newry & Mourne and the Newry & Mourne Gateway Club will take place at 6:30pm prior to the switch on. The aim is to build upon the success of last year’s fun run, the proceeds of which will be allocated at the Annual Charity Lunch in December.
So if you are up for the Santa challenge all we ask is you raise £100 and contact Newry Chamber of Commerce & Trade for a booking form. It’s not too late to enter.
