    Christmas Lights - Mousehole

    What’s it all about?

    There will be an open-air Carolaire service at the entrance to the North Quay. The ‘Carolaire Choir’, comprising of the Mousehole Male Voice Choir, Members of the Mousehole Methodist Church and friends from the community together with the Pendeen Silver Band, will lead the community singing. This year the lights will be switched on by Mr William and Mrs Trudi Thomas. 

    The lights will then be on each evening between 5pm and 11pm from 17th December 2017 until 6th January 2018 (With the exception of 19th Dec, when the lights will be dimmed between 8-9pm).If wet weather, the Carolaire service will be held in Mousehole Methodist Church

    The Christmas lights in Mousehole are a stunning sight, with floating displays of lights in the harbour and around the streets that are filled with the aroma of mulled wine and festive food. You’ll see a fantastic display of sea serpents, fishing boats and whales colourfully lighting up one of Cornwall’s most welcoming harbours. Centrepiece is the millennium Celtic cross on St Clement Island, powered ever so greenly by a wind generator. The village is ablaze with colour whilst the lights are on and to really appreciate the displays, walk around the narrow streets and follow the winding strings of lanterns as they disappear around the corner into yet another street barely wide enough to walk through. Have a browse around the local gift shops and stop for a meal and a drink in one of village restaurants, cafes or pubs.

    How can you take part?

    If you are planning a visit to Mousehole to see the Christmas Lights, then be prepared as parking is very limited. You may have to park on the outskirts of the village and walk in. For nearly three weeks the famous lights are illuminated between 6pm and 11pm every evening. The organiser's website is kept up-to-date with relevant information, including details of how to get to Mousehole. It will have details of road closure/park and ride buses [Carolaire night only] much nearer to Christmas.

    Winter Gift Fayre - Truro City

    Celebrating ten glorious years, the VCM goes from strength to strength.
     
    2017 dates to be confirmed.  The centrepiece and highlight of the Christmas activities in Truro, there are  traders, producers and exhibitors at this six day market on Lemon Quay Piazza in the centre of the City. Housed in a huge, heated marquee the event attracts tens of thousands of visitors each year to see the stall-holders in their costumes, sample their wares and buy unique gifts. 

    The marquee is split into two distinct zones; the Food Hall with meat, cheese, chocolates, preserves, liqueurs, ales etc witha large cafe and seating area,  and the Arts, Crafts and Gifts Hall which has clothing, jewellery, artwork, pottery, books and much more for your present buying delight. Most of the traders make their products themselves and will be happy to talk to you about production processes and, in the case of food, food miles, origin and traceability.

    Each year, the Mayor of Truro judges the best dressed trader and best decorated stall. 

    Truro late night shopping is on Wednesdays in the run up to Christmas and the marquee will be staying open untill 9.00pm. This is a great time for families as there is always some form of street theatre entertainment in the marquee. 

    If however, you prefer to take your time when shopping and not be crowded, the best times to visit are Tuesdays and Thursdays. Special arrangements are made for coach parties to visit during these quieter times and coach companies and trip organisers should contact the organisers for further details by clicking HERE

    Finally, for your convenience, you can order your Christmas meat supplies from our butcher (The Kernow Sausage Co.) and pick it up the weekend before Christmas at our Last Chance Market

    Free Admission. 

    This market is suitable for young and old alike, individuals and groups.

    The lights will then be on each evening between 5pm and 11pm from 17th December 2017 until 6th January 2018 (With the exception of 19th Dec, when the lights will be dimmed between 8-9pm).If wet weather, the Carolaire service will be held in Mousehole Methodist Church

    The Christmas lights in Mousehole are a stunning sight, with floating displays of lights in the harbour and around the streets that are filled with the aroma of mulled wine and festive food. You’ll see a fantastic display of sea serpents, fishing boats and whales colourfully lighting up one of Cornwall’s most welcoming harbours. Centrepiece is the millennium Celtic cross on St Clement Island, powered ever so greenly by a wind generator. The village is ablaze with colour whilst the lights are on and to really appreciate the displays, walk around the narrow streets and follow the winding strings of lanterns as they disappear around the corner into yet another street barely wide enough to walk through. Have a browse around the local gift shops and stop for a meal and a drink in one of village restaurants, cafes or pubs.

    How can you take part?

    If you are planning a visit to Mousehole to see the Christmas Lights, then be prepared as parking is very limited. You may have to park on the outskirts of the village and walk in. For nearly three weeks the famous lights are illuminated between 6pm and 11pm every evening. The organiser's website is kept up-to-date with relevant information, including details of how to get to Mousehole. It will have details of road closure/park and ride buses [Carolaire night only] much nearer to Christmas.

    The lights will then be on each evening between 5pm and 11pm from 17th December 2017 until 6th January 2018 (With the exception of 19th Dec, when the lights will be dimmed between 8-9pm).If wet weather, the Carolaire service will be held in Mousehole Methodist Church

    The Christmas lights in Mousehole are a stunning sight, with floating displays of lights in the harbour and around the streets that are filled with the aroma of mulled wine and festive food. You’ll see a fantastic display of sea serpents, fishing boats and whales colourfully lighting up one of Cornwall’s most welcoming harbours. Centrepiece is the millennium Celtic cross on St Clement Island, powered ever so greenly by a wind generator. The village is ablaze with colour whilst the lights are on and to really appreciate the displays, walk around the narrow streets and follow the winding strings of lanterns as they disappear around the corner into yet another street barely wide enough to walk through. Have a browse around the local gift shops and stop for a meal and a drink in one of village restaurants, cafes or pubs.

    How can you take part?

    If you are planning a visit to Mousehole to see the Christmas Lights, then be prepared as parking is very limited. You may have to park on the outskirts of the village and walk in. For nearly three weeks the famous lights are illuminated between 6pm and 11pm every evening. The organiser's website is kept up-to-date with relevant information, including details of how to get to Mousehole. It will have details of road closure/park and ride buses [Carolaire night only] much nearer to Christmas.
