Festive fun

Mold gets ready for Christmas

The Christmas festive season is set to sparkle in Mold town centre when the magical Xmas lights are switched on by Father Christmas on Tuesday 29 November. It promises to be a night to remember  with choirs and bands from the local primary and high schools providing the festive entertainment from 3.30pm in Daniel Owen Square – with a finale by Mold Town Concert Band.

Father Christmas will switch the lights on at 6pm, and meet children in his grotto afterwards. There will also be a funfair on the High Street from 4pm to 8.30pm.

Mold Town Council provide the Xmas lights and are replacing them year-on-year with energy efficient LED lights.
