Santa is coming to town

A visit to the Christmas Experience in the Shambles has become something of a tradition for many families, but the magic may feel somewhat lost if Santa and Mrs Claus have to wear a mask.

So the BEO (Ballycastle Events Organisation) have decided if the children cannot go to Santa, then Santa will come to them.

On 11th December, Santa and Mrs Claus and his elfs will visit a selection of locations in the parish in his magical sleigh – all within social distancing guidelines.

More details to follow.
