Heritage Trail 28th November 2020

November 28, 2020 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm Ballylough, 53 Castlecat Road, Bushmills,

BALLYLOUGH HERITAGE TRAIL – we are cancelling the 28th so we can re-work the Santa Trail event – please bear with us – the charity has been supported by Heritage Fund to make sure all the Trails are safe at all times, so perfect for a 2km exercise session outdoors – dogs welcome on a lead.  

We are going to create a DRIVE THROUGH event – we will add more lighting to the drive through, the goodie bag will be collectable and pre-packed at least 24 hours before moving to the collection point.  MORE performances are working on an outdoor theatre and Santa will still be here, keen to meet all the children, even if through the car windows.  Distancing will be strict, and the total EXPERIENCE should last about 30 minutes.  If you wish to walk the Heritage Trail, and we are able to do so safely, it will be open.  If we can’t open the trail, we will be putting a voucher into your pack that will enable you to come back and walk it when it is safe – plans to keep a lot of the lighting until end of March (no Christmas decorations after 6th Jan 2021).

Download your virtual tour guide before you visit.  The Mobile app is in  beta.  Any feedback can be sent to christmas @ ballylough.co.uk – make sure the word “Ballylough” is in the title / subject line.
