Marymass 2019 is just around the corner with excitement building ahead of the launch of the 12 day community festival.
The official Opening Ceremony of the festival takes place this Thursday, August 15th with free events taking place outside the Townhouse and Portal and the Global Village Market running from 10am – 9pm.
From 7:30pm, kids can enjoy free face painting and grab some funky balloon art from the balloon modelling team whilst the adults can enjoy live music and entertainment on stage.
Then, from 9:30pm, Marymass 2019 is officially opened. Provest Ian Clarkson will say a few words before the sashing of the new Queen and Mary’s. The announcement of Captain of Irvine Carters’ Society will also be made around 9:45pm.
A spokesperson for the Marymass Festival Committee said; “We want to make the Opening Ceremony more of a family friendly event.
“Free activities such as balloon modelling and face painting is a great way to entertain the kids without spending a penny.
“With the Global Village Market also on in Bridgegate until 9pm and some shops open until 8pm, there will certainly be plenty to see and do!”
