Christmas Street Lighting in Greystones

It’s that wonderful time of the year again as Greystones 2020, Greystones Municipal District and local businesses come together to support the installation of Christmas lights and the festivities around Santa’s arrival.

This year’s lighting event will kick off in Burnaby Park at 4:00 pm on Saturday,  23rd November, with an afternoon of family entertainment with Paul Byrne as MC.  There will be music and songs by Colaiste Chraobh Abhann School choir and performances from ‘Greystones Players’.  

This year we are delighted to welcome the Holyhead Male Voice Choir who will join us for some festive songs in advance of their Gala Concert with the Newtownmountkennedy Male Voice Choir in Greystones Rugby Club later that night. 

Local clergy will relate the true spirit of Christmas in a short ecumenical service and the lights will be switched on by the Cathaoirleach of Greystones Municipal District, Cllr Tom Fortune,  and Ms Grainne McLoughlin, Chairperson of Greystones 2020.

There will be over 1km of icicle lights throughout the town and two 30-foot-tall Christmas trees, each adorned with 3,000 lights, one at the train station and one at the Harbour Marina.

At 5:00 pm Santa will arrive to meet and greet all the children in a special vehicle courtesy of our twinning partners from Holyhead. 

Let the Christmas Magic begin in Greystones!
