After its success last year, Lumarina, the family friendly, fun filled, free event at Ballyronan Marina is back on Friday 18 and Saturday 19 August. This annual spectacular illumination has gained a reputation for amazing entertainment, with the picturesque backdrop of the Lough providing a unique atmosphere at this family themed event.

On Friday August 18, from 6pm – 10pm, Mid Ulster District Council will shine a light on the beauty of Lough Neagh, as the Marina provides the backdrop for an evening of music and entertainment.

Featuring fireworks, fire performers, a fun fair, children’s activities and food stalls, you can drink in the views from the Marina as dusk turns to night skies, to a live music soundtrack provided by Peach, a four piece band from Co. Antrim. Peach have performed with some of the most prestigious event promoters and acts in the country including Patrick Kielty and more recently playing with Chris DeBurgh and supporting the legendary Van Morrison!

The fun continues on the shores of Lough Neagh on Saturday afternoon (August 19) from 2pm – 6pm, with arts and crafts activities for the little ones, African drumming workshops, and magic shows.

Older children and the more adventurous among us with a head for heights can try their hands at the climbing wall and bungee trampoline, and much more!

Live music on Saturday afternoon is provided by The Bizz Band, the band everyone wants to dance to! From Moira, with a mixture of cover versions that range from Adele, Whitney Houston, The Scissor Sisters and Tom Jones to Journey, Garth Brooks, Lonestar, Jackie Wilson, you’re sure to be entertained!
