CROSS THE BRIDGE AND DISCOVER THE REAL MEANING OF CHRISTMAS
From Bridge Mills to Sea road, Galway’s Westend will be transformed into the most magical Christmas experience on Friday 6th December.
Westend businesses will be coming together on the first Friday in December in a community-style Christmas gathering. The event will see carolling from The Blue Notes Choir, while some of the award-winning local businesses will be serving up delicious food and mulled wine, and newly appointed Westend ambassador Patrick Becker from Blue Teapot Theatre Company will officially be turning on the Christmas lights at the Small Crane at 6:15pm. All proceeds from the refreshments and food sales on the night will go directly to the Blue Teapot Theatre Company.
“It’s a great honour to be asked to light up Galway’s Westend this Christmas, and I’m really proud to represent Blue Teapot Theatre Company,” said Patrick.
Galway’s Westend are partnering with Blue Teapot Theatre Company for 2020 and the theatre company will be the community’s charity partner for the duration of the year. Blue Teapot is a multi-award-winning Theatre Company, Performing Arts School & Outreach programme for people with intellectual disabilities at the forefront of arts & disability in Ireland. The company HQ is located on Munster Avenue in Galway’s Westend.
This is a family-friendly event and everyone is invited to join in the festive fun back West, and the evening’s festivities will be getting underway at 6pm. If it’s raining the Christmas Launch will take place at Massimo’s Winter Wonderland on William Street West instead. Just Art It on Dominick Street will be toasting to Christmas from 6pm to 9pm on December 6th as well. Everyone is invited to all events.
Galway’s Westend will host a Table Quiz in Massimo Bar on Monday 25th November at 7pm with prizes that include tickets to some of the best gigs coming to Galway, a chance to eat in some of the best restaurants in Galway, drinks tabs and of course what would it be without a month’s supply of Toilet roll.
