Santa has a busy time ahead to look forward to, as he will make his way around the four towns marking the beginning of Christmas celebrations. Festivities will commence in Ballymoney on Thursday 21st November, followed by Saturday 23rd November in Limavady, Thursday 28th November in Ballycastle and finishing on Friday 29th November in Coleraine.

To get you in the spirit, the festive programme is set to be a treat for all the family, with seasonal parades, family fun, Christmas light switch ons, and of course visiting Santa in his Grotto. 

In addition to these four events, there will be community festive events taking place in November and December in local towns and villages, supported by Causeway Coast and Glens Festive Fund. 

Children with additional needs can enjoy a pre-booked ‘Quiet Time’ in the four towns.
