Newry, Mourne and Down District Council is inviting everyone to get ready to celebrate Christmas with a series of Switch-On events taking place from 21 to 30 November 2019, beginning with the flagship Switch-Ons in Newry on 21 November and Downpatrick on 22 November.

Council Chairperson, Councillor Charlie Casey commented, “This year’s Christmas Light Switch-Ons in both Newry and Downpatrick will give families across our district the perfect opportunity to come together to celebrate the start of the festive season. I look forward to seeing you all there to get into the Christmas spirit.”

The Event Space at Marcus Square, Hill Street in Newry will be filled with Christmas cheer from 5pm on Thursday 21 November. Santa will arrive by train just in time for the Southern Area Hospice Services Santa Fun Run at 6pm. The whole family can enjoy live music and performances from the main stage including an exciting theatrical Christmas show along with free amusements, arts and craft workshops, face painting and balloon modelling before Santa and his helpers light up our tree at 7pm; you never know, there might even be snow.
