Barmouth’s Christmas Lights Switch On Event is a great family evening that brings together the community in a way unlike any other occasion in the town can.
It starts with the turning on of the Christmas Tree and Town Lights by the Mayor of Barmouth surrounded by Carol Singers and onlookers joining in to celebrate the start of Christmas.
The Church Bells ring out as people head towards the shops that have opened late especially for the occasion, stopping to listen to the famous Batala Bermo Samba Band and visiting the local Emergency Services that join in along the High Street.
With mulled wine, toasted marsh mellows, sweets, festive tipples and more, every shop offers a warm welcome to everyone who wishes to browse their fantastic range of goods.
Father Christmas awaits the children too, and many pubs and hotels offer live music through the night, adding to what has become is a very special night in the lives of all those who visit and who live in the town.
