Merthyr Tydfil's Annual Christmas Lighting Ceremony 2009

Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council’s Leisure Services Department will hold its annual Christmas Lighting Ceremony at the forecourt of the Civic Centre on Friday 20th November 2009.

This FREE event will help you see in the festive season in style, as Santa Claus and His Worship The Mayor, Councillor Glen Price, switch on the Town’s spectacular Christmas Illuminations!

A performance by Edwardsville Junior School Choir and communal carol singing will also help you get in to the Christmas spirit.

Accompanying Santa and the Mayor for the illumination ceremony will be three inspirational young people, who this year have received Outstanding Achievement Awards - Matty Sutton, Young Learner of the Year; Claire Price, Young Volunteer of the Year and Jessica Edwards, Young Carer of the Year.

Danter’s funfair, various children’s entertainers and the Red Dragon Radio Roadshow will also be present to keep the crowds entertained.

Kids should also keep a look out for Santa all day around the Town Centre, as Santa will be visiting St Tydfils Shopping Centre during the day, followed by a visit to the Children’s Ward in Prince Charles hospital.

The lighting ceremony begins at 6.00pm and ends at 7.00pm with the switching on of the inner town lights. The funfair will remain open until 8.30pm
