With the build up to Christmas gathering pace, Santa has confirmed he will take up residence in Enniscorthy’s National 1798 Centre from November 26. Open five days a week (Wednesday to Sunday) until December 22, Santa’s Enchanted Christmas will offer an expanded festive experience with its set and shows produced by local groups Rathnure Panto Society and Red Moon Theatre.

This much loved local attraction is organised by the Enniscorthy Municipal District in partnership with the National 1798 Centre, Wexford County Council (WCC) and supporting sponsor The Riverside Park Hotel. Patrons can check-in on the grounds before entering through the big red door for a 45-minute tour, before a wander through the multi room spaces as the gnomes cause mayhem along the way. Helped by her elves, Mrs Claus will entertain the kids before bringing them to meet Santa for those all-important gifts and chats with the big man himself.

A free trip to Enniscorthy Castle is included in the ticket price where visitors can enjoy the floor festive workshop by the North Two Madness team.

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. I have no doubt the creatives involved and experienced staff will produce and present a wonderful event reflective of the magic of Christmas for all the community to enjoy.”

Colm Neville, event sponsor and Chair of Enniscorthy District Chamber, added, “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. I wish the many individuals working together with the organisers and fellow sponsors Wexford County Council continued success with their endeavours.

"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”.
