Light up Christmas and Shine a light for Someone Special

Lights were turned on in Bangor this Friday 10th December. Light up Christmas is a magical event combining digital tributes and a real life display of 2,000 lights on Bangor’s beautiful Garth Pier.
The Bangor Soroptimists have sponsored a kiosk and a bench on our pier and have taken part in Lighting up Christmas for this second year. Members of the public are able to make a tribute and a light will shine bright as part of the stunning installation on the Pier throughout December. The tribute will appear on the digital “Wall of Lights” and could be included in a travelling projector show. All the donations benefit patients receiving care in hospitals and our local communities.

The Light up Christmas display on Bangor Pier will shine until 4th January.

The pier will also be open late until 8pm (weather permitting) from Thursday 16th December.

There’s still time to make a tribute for someone special:
