Christmas Lights in aid of the R.N.L.I.

December 8 @ 4:00 pm - 10:00 pm

The Christmas lights turn on is a magical time in Clovelly.  Starting at 4 pm in the afternoon, a local brass band leads the procession down to the harbour, with festive Christmas carols sung along the way.

There’ll be a hog roast, hot dogs, Christmas grog and other refreshments available at the Harbour and Lifeboat Station.
Then, Father Christmas will make a surprise visit!

After the Carol Service lead by a local vicar and sung by a local choir, the switch is thrown and the entire village and harbour lights up. It’s a fantastic sight!

Then there is a grand finale of fireworks to finish off the festivities.

For those in the mood for a light snack or dinner, the Red Lion bar and restaurant are open as is the the Up-along bar at the New Inn.

Entrance fee:  £10 per car at the Visitor Centre after 2 pm.  All proceeds will go to the R.N.L.I.

(Please avoid bringing dogs along as the sound, flashes and smells of fireworks can unsettle them.)
