Santa Claus is Coming to Town!

From the North-Pole to South-Wales; Penarth looks forward to welcoming Father Christmas and his reindeer for the Town’s annual Christmas Lights switch-on!

Sunday the 17th of November 2019 make your way along Windsor Road and mark the Christmas countdown with a family friendly festive day out, beginning at 1.30 pm.

Father Christmas will be flicking the switch and illuminating the town at 6.30pm with a little help from Mayor Cllr Angela Thomas.

Expect to see an explosion of live music and performances from some of the best local talent: The Mark Jermin Stage School,  The ScarletonsCurtis Lee, Evolution Dance, Shelley Norton Stage School,  The Pepper Seeds and a quintessential yuletide performance from the Salvation Army Band.

There will also be fairground attractions for children and a variety of stalls and shops serving seasonal food and drink throughout the day.
