The Christmas spirit was in the air on Saturday 25th November as the people of Pontypool welcomed in the festive season with a day of free family entertainment and the official switch on of the Christmas Lights.
Pontypool indoor market was taken over by Santa’s grotto and everyone’s favourite magician, Magnificent Johno. Mad Mel and the fantastic Elf Trio rocked the stage, and the Louby Lou gang were spotted making mischief through the streets.
This year also marked the addition of Pontypool’s first ever Land Train, offering free rides around the town throughout the day.
The event culminated in a parade of all the entertainers as Matt Ford, Chair of Pontypool Community Council, hit the on switch for this year’s light display, illuminating the night sky.
The Community Council would like to say a huge diolch yn fawr to all involved!
