Once again we have an action packed Christmas programme of events for the whole family. As well as our two Christmas carol services in Antrim Forum and Mossley Mill, we have information on our Christmas tree switch

I am looking forward to the ever popular Enchanted Winter Garden, as it opens at our award winning Antrim Castle Gardens on Friday 7 December. The 35m Ferris wheel is returning along with some new spectacular attractions. Don’t forget we will have our inclusive evening taking place again on Tuesday 18 December (see page 11 for information).
