The continuing uncertainty caused by the pandemic means that Merthyr Tydfil’s Christmas lights will have a ‘virtual’ switch-on for the second year in a row.
With Covid-19 infections still at a high rate across the UK, We Love Merthyr and partners Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council and St Tydfil Shopping Centre have reluctantly taken the decision not to have a switch-on event.
Instead, we will be bringing Christmas magic safely and cosily to your homes with a live broadcast from the Capital FM Headquarters, hosted by Josh and Kally and Santa Claus himself! Enjoy interviews, a Christmas giveaway, and some surprises along the way as we light up houses throughout Merthyr Tydfil with festive excitement.
Join us at 6 pm on Saturday 13th November for this years virtual Christmas lights switch on.
Please be advised that the Christmas lights in the town centre will not be lit at the time.
