have been reports of strange goings on at Castle Gardens. Some
park visitors have commented that the trees have been talking to
them, and there have been several claims of sightings of
fairy-like creatures and mystical musical sounds.
However, on further investigation it seems it is actually the
preparations for Lisburn City Council's 'Twilight Nights',
running Friday September 26 and Saturday September 27, 7pm to
9pm, organised by the Arts Service.
Councillor Allan Ewart of Lisburn City Council explained: "There
will be fire breathers and jugglers, trapeze acts and large
scale illuminated 'creatures', all set against a background of
magical harpist music. There will also be spot prizes for those
in the most enchanting outfits. It should be a great evening for
all the family."
Vice Chairman of Lisburn City Council's Leisure Services
Committee, Councillor David Archer added: "I would like to thank
everyone who has been working so hard to ensure Twilight Nights
will be a magical experience for all the family"
Booking is not required for the Twilight Nights, just pay at the
