The Search is on for a Little Star to Light Up Titanic Belfast

Christmas is coming… and the festive illuminations at Titanic Belfast are set to burst into life on
24th November to welcome Father Christmas but the world-leading attraction is looking for
someone special to switch on the lights and start the celebrations.

With Father Christmas due to arrive at its A Magical Christmas Experience on 24th November at
1pm, Titanic Belfast will be putting on a show to welcome him (12:30 – 3pm), starting with an
official illuminating ceremony, followed by an array of activities throughout the afternoon for
everyone to enjoy.

To kickstart the celebrations, it is on the lookout for one lucky child to switch on the lights. Not only
will they get to add sparkle to the iconic building but they will be the first to welcome Father
Christmas, who will be donning his finest red suit accompanied by his favourite reindeer and
sleigh,  before heading to the ticketed Magical Christmas Experience along with their parents and

Titanic Belfast’s Chief Executive Judith Owens, commented: “Christmas is a truly magical time of
year, at Titanic Belfast, our Magical Christmas Experience is all about embracing festive cheer and
creating unique memories. This year, we are inviting everyone to join us and celebrate Father
Christmas’ arrival and to see our magnificent display of lights being switched on at 1pm, followed
by festive fun for all the family. Most importantly, we want to add sparkle to someone’s Christmas
by giving them the opportunity to lead our celebrations.  If you know a special child who would be
dazzled to start the countdown to Christmas by turning on Titanic Belfast’s twinkling lights, visit”

With brass bands, funfair entertainers, spot prizes as well as plenty of seasonal food and drinks,
and many places in Titanic Quarter embracing the festive spirit, there is no better place to start the
Christmas season.

The public event is to mark the start of Titanic Belfast’s Magical Christmas Experience, which runs
yearly from 24th November to 23rd December where children can step through the Old Curiosity
Shop to enter into the Elves’ Workshop, join Mrs Claus at her cosy kitchen, hear Christmas tales,
enjoy festive games and meet Father Christmas himself. For more information, visit .
