Come and join us on Saturday 18th November as we kick off Christmas in Merthyr with a day of festive family fun for the Merthyr Christmas Lights Switch On in Penderyn Square.
Heart Breakfast's Jagger and Woody and the Heart Angels will be counting down to the big switch on from 4.30pm with the local group Fantasy Feet, stars from Redhouse’s pantomime production of Cinderella, the Band of The Salvation Army, the mixed choir of St David’s Church and, of course, Santa.
Then as the darkness falls the entertainment will reach a fantastic climax with Juggling Inferno and their spectacular LED glow show, First Light, before the moment comes to press the plunger and light up the town.
Make it a family day out as all the festivities start at 11am in the town centre. The most important visitor of all, Santa, will be ensconced in his grotto greeting young fans. Whilst other seasonal attractions include real reindeer, fairground rides, a Christmas Food Market, face painting and glitter tattoos, dance and music performances, animal displays, crafts and much more.
Now all of that will definitely get you in the mood for Christmas!
When you're there, make sure you visit the Heart Angels too, they'll be there from 1pm with free Christmas Antlers and having lots of festive fun.
You could even make a head start on your Christmas shopping - especially as you can park all day on Saturdays for just £1 in the town centre's pay and display car parks, right up to Christmas. So, don't rush back to your car, stay and make the most of the shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants!
