Life’s a beach and to help you enjoy it Belfast’s popular twilight market, back at St George’s Market at the end of this month, is taking Beach Party as its theme.

 

All the wonderful things that go to making up a perfect beach party – a little sand, shade, good food, something to drink, and the perfect party music – will be on offer at St George’s.

 

Traders at the family-friendly event are going the extra mile with food demonstrations and little tasters on offer. Fun begins as soon as the doors open on Tuesday, 31 July and Wednesday, 1 August and the event runs from 4pm-11pm each day.

 

Councillor Aileen Graham, Deputy Chair of the City Growth and Regeneration Committee, said: “The earlier part of the day is family friendly events and entertainment, with the latter part of the evening being aimed at over 18s.”

 

“It’s a chance to see, taste and listen in a very relaxed atmosphere. The beach theme is because it is summer and who doesn’t love to enjoy the sights and sounds of summer,” added the councillor.
