Christmas Lights Switch On
Visit Merthyr Tydfil town centre for a fabulous day of free festive family fun!
See PJ Masks Catboy, Owlette and Gekko, who will be making personal appearances between 11am and 3.30pm outside High Street Baptist Church.
Visit Santa and his helpers in their Christmas Grotto in St Tydfil Shopping Centre from 10am.
And enjoy a whole host of other seasonal attractions including real reindeer, fairground rides, a pop-up Christmas Gift Market, walkabout characters, face painting and balloon modelling, the Capital FM Street Stars, an animal petting zone, dance and music performances by local groups, a mobile climbing wall and much more.
Then make you way to Penderyn Square for 5pm where Capital FM breakfast stars Matt and Polly will be your hosts. There’ll be festive music from the Sing With Us choir, whilst Santa and the PJ Masks will be joining the festivities too. As darkness falls, Merthyr Tydfil’s very own local hero, Latalia Bevan, fresh from her medal-winning performance at this year’s Commonwealth Games, will join us to press the plunger and light up the town.
All welcome - join us and have yourself a Merry Merthyr Christmas!
It's only £1 to park all day in the town centre pay and display car parks so come along and treat yourself to a fabulous festive day out!
The Christmas Lights Switch On is jointly organised by Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council and The Big Heart of Merthyr Tydfil.
