Christmas sparkles into life with the Big Switch On

23rd November 2019 16:00 Europe/Dublin

Christmas sparkle into life on November 23rd with Bray Town Centre’s Christmas lights switch-on.

Christmas festive cheer is to launch in Bray, with a cracker karaoke-style session on Saturday, November 23rd at 4 pm. The event will be hosted by this year’s Bray Chamber of Commerce Endeavour Civic award winner Adam Burke, who is also well known for his energetic MC skills for “Bingo Loco” and Hardy Har Comedy. Adam really wants the people of Bray to come and sing their hearts out to popular Christmas tunes and spread the Christmas Spirit. If the town sings loud enough, we hope we will get the attention of the North pole and Santa might arrive to see what it is happening, so come along and sing loud for Santa to hear! 

The ‘Big switch-on’ is expected to be a busy one with hundreds of people flocking to the civic plaza to enjoy the event. If you’re planning on being there too, why not come to Bray a little earlier, grab something to eat, enjoy a spot of Christmas shopping and then pick your spot in the plaza ready for the festivities to start.
