Snow White (Katelyn Ramshaw) dazzles the Mayor, Councillor John Scott with the programme of events at this year’s Glengormley Switch On event


Glengormley will light up for Christmas this year on Saturday 12 November 2016 with an array of family fun activities.  Come and see Snow White and friends in their Enchanted Forest from 1.30pm in Glengormley Pavilion with craft sessions by Jumping Clay for the whole family.  Tickets are required for the Enchanted Forest, which also includes a free child’s visit to Santa’s Grotto.  Tickets for the three sessions at 1.30pm, 2.45pm and 4pm, are available from McMillen’s News, 12 Carnmoney Road, Glengormley, BT36 6HN and cost £3 per person. 

Children can also visit Santa’s Grotto at a cost of £2.50 per child which includes a gift from Santa. Proceeds from the grotto will go to charities supported by the Newtownabbey Rotary Club. 

At 2.30pm the free family fun entertainment will kick off with local radio presenters ensuring the crowd gets into the festive spirit.  At 5pm there will be Christmas readings, Carols and music before the much-awaited arrival of the Mayor along with his special guests Snow White, Santa and friends.  Together they will lead the fancy dress parade to the Christmas tree at the Ulster Bank, where they will switch on the Christmas tree lights to light Glengormley up for a magical Christmas!
