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

December 02, 2018

Christmas lights in the village makes this such a magical time at Clovelly.  It starts at 3:30 pm in the afternoon. Our local brass band leads the procession down to the harbour with festive Christmas carols sung by a local church choir.  


There’ll be a hog roast, hot dogs, Christmas grog and other refreshments available at the Harbour and Lifeboat Station and Father Christmas will make a surprise visit. At about 5 p.m. the switch is thrown and the entire village and harbour lights up. It’s a fantastic sight!

The Carol Service is then lead by the Chaplain of the Lifeboat Station. Following this our grand finale of fireworks finishes the festivities off perfectly.

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

Entrance fee:  £5 per car at the Visitor Centre after 3 pm.  All proceeds to RNLI
