Christmas in Carlow Committee

Co Carlow Chamber have secured funding for Christmas Lights for Carlow Town, Bagenalstown and Tullow. The installation of Christmas Lights is an important element of an overall regeneration programme in the town centres in response to retail research findings indicating that Christmas Lights are the single most important factor in increasing footfall to the town centre during the festive season.

We are now working on developing an attractive programme of events to compliment the Christmas Lights Campaign to maximise festive activity and opportunities for retailers in Carlow for Christmas 2013.

Representatives from Co Carlow Chamber, Carlow County Development Partnership, Carlow CEB, Carlow Town Council and Carlow Tourism and local retailers have agreed to join a working group titled ‘Christmas in Carlow Committee’

The objective of the Committee is to plan, develop and implement an exciting and innovative Christmas campaign in the town in 2013 drawing from the broad and valuable pool of expertise and resources from the retail sector and from the relevant agencies in the town and county.

The overall goal is to make Carlow an attractive place to shop and spend time over the festive season thus generating economic spin off for the county and consequent employment creation.

The Group will meet on Friday the 27th of September at 10am in The Town Hall to set out its Christmas Programme.
