Christmas lights switch on for Treharris community

The annual Christmas fair and lights switch-on is returning to Treharris town centre on Friday 2 December.

A host of seasonal activities at Treharris Square will include a performance by local acoustic Irish band Fiddler’s Elbow, alongside a range of stalls run by local groups and businesses.

The fair opens at 3pm and the Christmas lights will be switched on at 6pm by Mayor of Merthyr Tydfil Cllr Declan Sammon, while Treharris Community Centre is hosting Santa’s Grotto and carol singing led by Edwardsville Primary School Choir.  There will also be mince pies and a hot drink to warm you up!
