Join us in Newry on Saturday 18 & Sunday 19 December for what's shaping up to be a wonderful family event. The Snowman Christmas Special, a concert (curated by violinist Joanne Quigley McParland) has something for all the family to enjoy, including an opportunity to see Howard Blake’s timeless, iconic winter's tale ‘The Snowman’. This all family classic, tells the tale of a little boy’s midnight adventures with the magical snowman.

The Hall will be transformed into a movie theatre and the film will be accompanied by a live professional orchestra and narrated by Northern Irish actress and singer Sara Dylan, known for her appearances in The Fall, Line of Duty and Game of Thrones®.

The Children from Flynn Performing Arts will join us to perform and there will be a special performance by Matthew Benson.  Timeless festive classics will fill the hall, such as Leroy Anderson’s Sleigh Ride, Mel Tormé’s The Christmas Song and a special reading with orchestral accompaniment of ‘The Night Before Christmas’ by Clement C. Moore.  

We also have been informed that there will be a visit from a very special visitor who is extremely busy this time of year.

Event proudly presented and hosted by Newry, Mourne and Down District Council.
