Titanic Belfast is giving one lucky child the opportunity to officially kick-off the festive celebrations by switching on the Christmas lights at the world-leading visitor attraction.
People are invited to nominate their little stars and as part of the festivities, one lucky elf will be the first to greet Father Christmas and his reindeers, have the job of adding the sparkle to the iconic building and get an advanced preview of Titanic Belfast’s ‘A Magical Christmas Experience’ before it is opened to the public. Four runners up will also win a family pass to the advanced preview.
There will be lots of free festive fun for everyone to look forward to on Sunday 20th November from 1pm, starting with the arrival of Father Christmas and the official illuminating ceremony followed by carols, funfair entertainers, Christmas crafts and lots more.
Judith Owens MBE, Chief Executive of Titanic Belfast said: “We are really excited to welcome back the much-loved ‘A Magical Christmas Experience’ and to give one lucky child the chance to switch on our festive illuminations. It’s no secret that Titanic Belfast is one of the city’s most beautiful buildings, but at this time of year, it has an extra sparkle, so it’s a very special opportunity for one little star to play a key role in helping us mark the beginning of Christmas.
This will be the first year we’ve been able to bring back our full programme of festive activities since 2019 and we are inviting everyone to join us for lots of festive fun, seasonal food and drinks.”
‘A Magical Christmas Experience’ will open to the public from Wednesday 23rd November until Friday 23rd December and visitors will journey through the Enchanted Forest to make a wish by the Magical Wishing Tree, see the Elves’ Workshop, visit Mrs Claus to hear Christmas tales, write and post their own Christmas letter, enjoy some festive arts and crafts before meeting Father Christmas himself.
