Plans for a cracker of a Christmas across the Causeway Coast & Glens

The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Council Councillor Ivor Wallace launches this year’s programme of Christmas Cavalcades.

As Yuletide celebrations approach, Causeway Coast and Glens Council is delighted to announce its Christmas Cavalcade dates throughout the Borough.

The festive programme will commence from the 17th November - 3rd December 2022, with this year also seeing the welcome return of the much-loved children’s favourite Santa’s Grotto.


The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council Councillor Ivor Wallace said:

“It will be wonderful to see our Christmas Cavalcade return to town centres throughout the Borough this November and December.


“I’m delighted that Santa’s Grotto will feature in the 2022 programme and I hope our events will bring some much needed Christmas cheer to all our residents, young and old.


“This will be a great opportunity to support local traders in our town centres where we can, whilst also giving residents the chance to have some Christmas family fun and enjoy the wonderful atmosphere our town centres have to offer.”

The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Council Councillor Ivor Wallace and his grandchildren join Santa to launch this year’s festive programme.


The Cavalcade will signal the start of the festive season culminating in the annual Christmas lights switch on. Commencing in Ballymoney on Thursday the 17th November, Santa will join some very special friends, visiting nine different locations across the Borough.


The yuletide journey will continue throughout the Borough coming to various locations during November and December, with the final procession reaching Kilrea on Saturday 3rd December.


Children will be able to visit Santa in his Grotto before he commences his cavalcade journey in all 9 locations; so, wrap up well and ensure you arrive in plenty of time to enjoy what promises to be an atmospheric adventure for all the family.

Children with additional needs can enjoy a pre-booked ‘Quiet Time’ in the following locations:
