Minions ready for Antrim Christmas Switch-on

Antrim Town is the place to be on Friday night from 5.45 pm as the Christmas lights switch on ceremony, organised in conjunction with Castle Mall, promises to start the yuletide season with festive fun and entertainment.

The action kicks off in Market Square with musical entertainment hosted by Pete Snodden from Cool FM who will entertain with hits both old and new. Ballyduff Silver Band will also add some musical accompaniment for the main event.

Of course the evening wouldn’t be complete without a visit from Santa who will make his grand entrance with his Minion companions and stilt walking friends at 7pm.

One of the highlights is sure to be the special Children’s Prize Draw with great prizes to be won, including a Mini iPad. If you haven’t already got your prize draw slip, they are available from the Old Courthouse and can also be picked up at the event on the evening.

Make sure you don’t miss your chance to grab yourself an early Christmas present! A spectacular fireworks display at 7.30pm will round off what will undoubtedly be a perfect festive evening.
