Lisburn Light Festival Returns!

November 15, 2019

Lisburn City Centre is being transformed with amazing displays of light and sound. From 22 November 2019 until 25 January 2020 visitors are invited to see the city in a new light. Come and enjoy the captivating 150 metre Light Canopy producing dazzling shows the length and breadth of Bow Street. The musical Christmas Tree in Market Square will once again project colourful shows over the interactive light floor.

This Winter brings new light attractions so pick up your Trail Map in any store and follow it to make sure you don't miss out. Be amazed as you travel through the sparkling multi-coloured Light Tunnel in Lisburn Square which is 100m in length. There will be plenty of photo opportunities as you stand inside the beautiful LED Christmas Bauble in Bow Street Mall or visit the illuminated Angels. Interact with the maze of pivoting light prisms in Market Square and don’t miss the other eye-catching light displays along the way.

Speaking about the Lisburn Light Festival Alderman Allan Ewart MBE, Chairman of Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council’s Development Committee, said “Lisburn Light Festival is set to be even bigger and brighter with new interactive light creations and amazing displays. The Council are thrilled to welcome back the popular Light Canopy and Christmas Tree light shows and we expect thousands of visitors to Share the Magic of the Season with friends and family. I encourage you to pick up a Lisburn Light Festival Trail Map, grab something to eat or do some of that all important present shopping while enjoying the lights.”

DfC has contributed £100,000 to support the Lisburn Light Festival. Paul Carr, Acting Director Regional Development Office, Department for Communities stated: “Lisburn Light Festival is a great opportunity to attract people into Lisburn City Centre and will help to highlight the breadth of offer available; this is a must-visit event for families from across the region.”

A fantastic line up of free events will run during Lisburn Light Festival including a Frozen Spectacular, Christmas Vintage Frock Fair, Live Nativity and Rock Around the Christmas Tree outdoor party. Follow the Magical Window Trail themed ‘The 12 Days of Christmas’ and be enchanted as shop fronts come alive for two special nights in December. Start the New Year with a Princess and Superhero Extravaganza Party, a Star Wars Galactic Light Show and Welcome in the Chinese New Year at the Festival Finale. There will be something for everyone!
