It's heading for Halloween and the council have unveiled their weekend of festivities.

On Friday 1 November, rounding off the half-term week, the much-loved Twilight Market will return to host Newry Mourne and Down’s flagship Taste the Island event at Newry Variety Market, followed by a fantastic fireworks and laser show at Fathom Line.

The Twilight Market, in John Mitchel Place, will be open from 5pm and will transform the Variety Market into a food and drink heaven, with over 50 traders offering unique locally-produced artisan food and drink, as well as a bar offering craft beers and small-batch gins. 

Friday 1 November is Fireworks night in Newry!

With fun for all the family, the Twilight Market will also be running a series of free activities to keep everyone entertained, with face painting, arts and crafts, street performers and a full programme of live music. 

Fathom Line is the place to be at 8pm for the superb Newry City ‘Fireworks Frenzy’, a specially choroegraphed music, lights, laser and fireworks display. Visitors are advised to get down with plenty of time to claim their spot along the Quays for the best viewpoint.

On Saturday 2 November, as part of the National Museums NI Late Shift series of events, there will be a superb ‘Swingin’ Wartime Revue’ lates event at Newry and Mourne Museum, Bagenal's Castle. Inspired by wartime concerts held in Newry during the 1940s, hidden histories will be revealed after dark, with music, magic, comedy and unique, one-off experiences.  Doors open from 6.30 and there is an on-site bar.  As part of the Taste the Island celebrations, visitors will uncover food and drink tastings, music and surprise performances straight from a Pathé newsreel as they explore the museum. This event is supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Tourism NI and Department for Communities. 

Visit WWW.VISITMOURNEMOUNTAINS.CO.UK to book and note the Swingin’ Wartime Revue is a strictly over-18s event.

The Twilight Market will take place on Friday 1 November at Newry Market.

Commenting on the events Newry, Mourne and Down District Council Chairperson, Councillor Charlie Casey said, “This Twilight Market provides a wonderful opportunity for our local producers to come together to showcase the fantastic food and drink available within our District.  With gates opening at 5pm, I encourage you to get there early and sample the delicious treats that will be on offer before making your way to Fathom Line for 8pm to find your perfect spot for viewing the fireworks.  It is set to be a fantastic evening for all the family. 

“On Saturday night and back by popular demand, the Late Shift NI will see Bagenal’s Castle come to life after dark with the Swingin’ Wartime Revue.  Inspired by the new temporary exhibition in Newry and Mourne Museum on World War Two and the Revue concerts held in the 1940’s, this step back in time is one not to be missed.  Last year’s event was a sell-out so book your ticket now to avoid disappointment.”
