Enniscorthy is the town to share in the magic of Christmas this year and an exciting programme of festive events were unveiled today at a press launch in the National 1798 Rebellion Centre at Enniscorthy.

Cathaoirleach Cllr Aidan Browne, joined with elves and reindeers to set the tone for the coming weeks of excitement as Enniscorthy Municipal District in partnership with the National 1798 Centre, Wexford

County Council and supporting sponsor The Riverside Park Hotel announced http://www.santasenchantedchristmas.ie which will open its doors on Saturday, November 26th and will run five days weekly Wednesday to Sunday until December 22nd.

An expanded Christmas experience is in the making for patrons with the magical set and show theme produced by local groups Rathnure Panto Society and Red Moon Theatre.

Mico Hassett, Manager of the site says “The response to general sale tickets which

went live on our new website in September has been very encouraging. Priority ‘sleep over’ packages direct from our hotel partner The Riverside Park Hotel are almost at full capacity which is a welcome boost in these difficult trading times”.

 Ger Mackey, Enniscorthy Municipal District Manager stated; “We expected interest to be sizeable on our return to a full schedule, the added slot capacity and onsite services such as accessibility and free parking available this year is proving popular with families. It is important we attract visitors to dwell and shop in Enniscorthy during the winter season to bolster the spirit of Christmas alongside benefiting the local economy.”

Colm Neville, sponsor and Chair of Enniscorthy District Chamber commented; “The Riverside Park Hotel is proud to support the event and I am heartened to see such a positive response to Santa’s Enchanted Christmas from the public across the entire region. The South-East’s newest Christmas event will showcase the talent and services we have on our doorstep here in their own particularly entertaining way while both locals and visitors alike can soak up the atmosphere across two cultural sites and around Enniscorthy town.
