Posted by admin

Music, merriment and memories await you at Glow, A Cork Christmas Celebration

 
Opening Friday, 28th November
 
Cork City Centre will be abuzz with festive cheer this Friday, as Christmas in Cork officially gets underway with the opening of ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas’ storybook attraction in Bishop Lucey Park, a 30 meter high Ferris Wheel and Christmas food and craft markets on Grand Parade as part of Glow, A Cork Christmas Celebration.
 
Bishop Lucey Park has gone through an exciting transformation and has been decked out with seasonal decorations and lights showcasing stunning scenes and live characters from the story. Guests will be met by a host of colourful characters including Melody Patience (Choir Mistress), Jimmy Sweeper (The Chimney Sweep), and Hugo & Hetty Gossip.

Take a trip on the 30 meter high Ferris Wheel on the Grand Parade offering breathtaking views of the City.
 
Choirs and groups will also perform Christmas carols as well as family favourite festive jingles, in aid of their chosen charity, for the duration of Glow, A Cork Christmas Celebration.
