Join us on Saturday 16th November for the Pontypridd Christmas Light Switch on 2019.
We’re teaming up with Pontypridd Town Council to bring you a whole host of entertainment for the afternoon, before the town is illuminated with the colour of Christmas! Last year 25,000 embarked in the Town Centre for the event and once again we have a great day lined up.
GTFM will be in two locations on the day. We’ll be on stage presenting the event and bringing you a host of local talent live as well as entertaining you outside Santa’s Grotto near the fountain.
It starts at 2pm with Santa’s Grotto opening at 12noon – bring the family down and enjoy your official start of the countdown to Christmas.
On the day there will be:-
- Synethic ice rink
- Large Snow-globe
- Children’s rides
- Face painting
- Snow Cannons
As well as an outdoor cinema showing Arthur Christmas between 4pm and 4:30pm
If you plan to attend the outdoor cinema, the following rules apply:
- Under-16s must be accompanied by an adult.
- Even though organisers are hoping for a nice, dry night the event will still go ahead if it rains.
