Michael Sheen will be switching on the Christmas lights in Ystradgynlais on Friday, November 24 at 5pm in the town’s Gorsedd Park. The Christmas lights switch-on event is part of the annual Gwyl Ystradgynlais Christmas Festival organised by the volunteers of the Ystradgynlais Society for Arts Trade and Tourism.
Friday’s event will feature mulled wine and mince pies as well as carols by candlelight around the Christmas tree. Singer-songwriter Bronwen Lewis, who featured in the award-winning film Pride and appeared on BBC’s The Voice, will also perform a number of Christmas songs on stage. At the end of the evening, Santa and his elves will arrive to escort everyone to the St Cynog’s Church Christmas Fete at the Church Hall just around the corner.
Ystradgynlais will also be hosting lots of other Christmas events!
There will be a Christmas Tree Festival from the 5-10th of December, a Christmas Fayre on Sunday 10th of December with craft stalls, reindeer, carol singers, a brass band, food and drink…with much more!
And don’t forget their Christmas carol service on the 19th of December!
