The bar will stay open until 10pm so you can enjoy a drink with friends  after browsing the market in the twinkling Christmas lights in the city centre and listen to the live music. 

Live music and entertainment

The icing on our Christmas cake will be the Belfast Busking Band, who will hopefully get everyone singing, or at least humming along to Christmas tunes. Following them will be music from the stunning voice of Ria Maguire.

The band and Ria will be keeping the Christmas spirit alive while you explore the market and enjoy the festivities.
