“On offer this year are a variety of free events starting with our Christmas Switch On in Lisburn City Centre on 23rd November, which will see all the festive lights start to brighten up the Lisburn and Castlereagh area.

"Following the switching on of the Christmas lights across Lisburn and Castlereagh there will be an Enchanted Lantern Walk from Market Square to Castle Gardens.  We look forward to you joining us.

"Our Christmas programme is supported by the great partnership working between us and our local businesses and community groups.

"There really is a true Christmas spirit in Lisburn and Castlereagh this year. So let us mark the occasion together at what can be a very difficult time for people for a variety of reasons."

The Mayor, Councillor Andrew Gowan.

Please be advised that on this evening only assistance dogs will be permitted into Castle Gardens.
