Bandon South Main Street will host the Official Lighting Ceremony and a day of Festive Fun on Sunday, November 29.

Organised by a small committee of traders and interested parties, trojan work has been done to ensure that Bandon twinkles this Christmas. Traders and the people of Bandon have dug deep to come up with the funds necessary to put the lights up again this year and make some vital repairs.

There will be live music featuring Ruby Jude, The Shruggs, Glasslin Choir, Bandon Bell Ringers, Voiceworks and Comhaltas Newcestown between 2.30pm and 7pm on November 29. Other entertainment includes face painting, vintage cars and Santa. There will also be a live crib at Jeffers Corner.

The ‘Turning on of the Lights’ will take place at 6pm with Santa and a host of local celebrities joining in the celebration. The stage will be located at Lordan’s of Bandon.

Liz Bryan commented that “Bandon is a great town with something to offer everyone this Christmas” – she and the committee are hoping people from Bandon and Surrounding areas will Support Local and Shop Local.

The group have a very active Facebook page showcasing all that is on offer in Bandon this Christmas with a host of events. Follow them on Bandon Christmas Lights facebook page.
