The magical excitement of Christmas will descend on Armagh on Saturday as the city gets ready to stage Georgian Day.

The event is inspired by Armagh’s unique and historic Georgian cityscape – and this year the city will be transformed into an awesome winter wonderland, with a packed schedule of family-fun events, activities and entertainment to enjoy from 10am until 9pm, most of which are free of charge.

More than 70 festive stalls will line the city streets offering locally produced food, drinks and high quality gifts, with stallholders serving customers in Georgian outfits.

New for 2015, the Children’s Market at The Shambles Yard will play host to a fantastic range of family-friendly festive experiences.

The highlight of this must-see festival is the Georgian Day light show, which takes place at Armagh’s famous Market House, where crowds will enjoy a jaw-dropping experience as the local landmark bursts into life with the stunning “T’was the Light before Christmas” show that takes place on the hour, every hour, between 5-8 o’clock.
