Rhiwbina Christmas Festival plans under way

Plans are under way for the 2017 Rhiwbina Christmas Festival, which will take place on Saturday 2nd December.

The timetable will be as follows: 4pm Festival starts (though Father Christmas will likely start around 3.30pm); 5pm Christmas tree/street lighting – the switch on; 5.30pm Lantern parade; 6pm Carols around the Christmas tree

Heol Y Deri will be closed, as usual for the festival, from Beulah Church crossroads up to Lon Isa from 2pm – 8pm. Pen Y Dre will also be closed.  Beulah Road will remain open with buses diverted along it.15094892_1462950960386484_5272447135900101747_n
The Rhiwbina Village Events committee is hoping to bring back Rhiwbina’s Best Dressed Window competition; and it is hoped that shops will coordinate late-night opening.
Further details will follow.
