Here's what you can look forward to:

Christmas fayre and light switch on

  • November 22, 5pm

Meet in the Square for the official Christmas tree light switch on. There will be music and carol singing, festive market stalls and family entertainment.

David C Clements in concert

  • November 23, 8pm

David C Clements has been grabbing the attention of music lovers through his exceptional live performances for quite some time. He is a alternative folk singer with swelling melodies and vocals touched with the ache of experience, retelling tales that feel at once both insightful and familiar. Clements is a well-respected musician from Belfast, having cut his teeth performing with former band, SixStarHotel, yet it is his solo material that demands most attention, notably with Ed Sheeran and Passenger, as well as Snow Patrol's Gary Lightbody. The live concert will take place within the heated marquee in CS Lewis Square and feature a fully licensed bar from Horatio Todd’s.

Narnia Themed Banquet

  • November 24, 7.30pm

A delicious five-course banquet created from the very best hand-picked local produce, cooked and served by the brilliant team at Freight/Gypsy Kitchen in CS Lewis Square, with each course inspired by the fabulous feasts created by CS Lewis in The Chronicles of Narnia. A secret menu is available. Please advise on booking of any allergies/ dietary requirements.

Brian Houston Concert

  • November 25, 8pm

Following the release of the critically acclaimed Songs From My Father, Houston and his guitar have been touring the frontier of northern Quebec with a Cree chief, travelling coast to coast across North America and plying his trade in the troubadour tradition in places as far flung as Romania and Israel. Houston has been writing fresh new songs to be recorded soon and is poised to release his most visceral album yet. The live concert will take place within the marquee in CS Lewis Square and feature a fully licensed bar from Horatio Todd’s.
