Penarth Town Council is delighted to announce that the town’s Christmas Lights Switch On event returns for 2022.

The big event takes place on Sunday 20th November, from 3pm to 7pm on Windsor Road.

A packed stage of entertainment is planned, hosted by TV’s Laura Jane Jones and featuring Christmas favourites from James Williams, the fabulous Gershwin Quartet and dance vibes from Orchestral Beats. Local heroes PODS will be previewing their pantomime, with the fun kicked off by Rock Choir.

In the town centre, there are plenty of free activities for the family, with entertainment from Hijinx Theatre’s Grumpy Unicorns, festive crafts with Eggseeds and wonders from Pedal Emporium. Fairground rides and games complete the Christmas carnival.

Town Mayor, Laura Rochefort said “I’m so pleased that this important event in the town’s calendar can return after the isolation of the last couple years. I’m delighted we can bring this free event to the town centre again for families to enjoy. I look forward to the town’s fabulous new lights display and to begin the festive celebrations.”
