Get your Magical Christmas in Derry

Derry is quite magical during the Christmas Break.

The Christmas light switch-on takes place on Thursday 22nd November. This annual event is fantastic for all the family and kick starts the festive season.

From Friday, November 23 to Sunday, November 25, there will be a craft fair at the Guildhall and this will be followed with the Walled City Market on Saturday, December 1.

The Christmas Market will run from Thursday, December 13 to Sunday, December 17 and will include a bar serving ‘craft and artisan drinks’.

Meanwhile, the Mayor’s Christmas programming will run from Saturday, December 8 to Sunday, December 9 and will see the main hall in the Guildhall transformed into what was described at the meeting as ‘an atmospheric and mysterious winter fairy-tale will surprise and delight audiences of all ages’.

So if you’re looking for a place to stay and enjoy a Christmas Break in Derry, look no further and book your stay with Maldron today.
