About the Event
The Christmas lights in Omagh will be turned on, on on Thursday 26 November 2015.
A great programme of family entertainment has been arranged, with carols from Christ the King Primary School Choir, addresses from the Council Chairman and Omagh Churches Forum, and music from the Whistlin’ Donkeys and Shane Owens. This year’s special guest is Derek Ryan and his band.
The entertainment commences at 6:30pm in the town centre and includes the traditional Parade of Santa and his Cartoon Character helpers, who come through Bridge Street and High Street, arriving at the Courthouse to switch on the Christmas Lights at 7.45pm.
To facilitate the ‘Switch On’ event, a temporary street closure on High Street will be in operation from approximately 4.30pm – 9pm. However all car parks will be open as normal. PSNI Officers and stewards will coordinate arrangements to minimise disruption. A specially designated area at the front of the stage will be reserved for those with disabilities, and ISL and BSL language interpreters will be available.
