The big Mitchelstown Christmas Lights Switch On will take place this Saturday at 5.45pm, and Mr and Mrs Claus are ready to welcome you to town!

Festivities begin at 1pm, with a live broadbast from New Market Square in town. Members of the MBA and The Lions Club have banded together to make 2021’s celebrations as special as possible, and as safe as possible, by making the whole day accessible through their Facebook page.

Messages to friends both near and far will be read out throughout the day, and the whole family are invited along to try their hand at a town treasure hunt quiz at 4.30pm.
