Speaking ahead of the village opening, Mayor of Derry Brenda Stevenson described it as “bigger and better than ever”.

“We have lots of additional features in the programme which will appeal to the whole family. I’m particularly delighted to see the return of the Legenderry on Ice which had people flocking to the square last year, and of course the new Festive Funfair.”

Ilex’s Chief Executive Mel Higgins added: “We are thrilled that LegenDerry on Ice is returning to Ebrington Square this year and that it will be enhanced by the Christmas Village.”

The Christmas Village at Ebrington will open Monday to Thursday from 4pm to 10pm and Friday to Sunday 12pm to 10pm.
