The Christmas lights in Mousehole draw many thousands of visitors each year. Truly a stunning sight, with floating displays of lights in the harbour and around streets filled with the aroma of mulled wine and festive food.
The 2019 ‘switch-on’ will be held on Saturday 14th December 2019 at 6.30pm.
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 Brian and Mrs Avis Martin.
If wet weather, the Carolaire service will be held in Mousehole Methodist Church
The lights will then be on each evening between 5pm and 11pm from 15th December 2019 until 4th January 2020 (With the exception of 19th Dec, when the lights will be dimmed between 8-9pm).
During the 2018 lights display some individuals took it upon themselves to stop people as they were entering the village and ask them for an 'Admission fee' to see the lights.
The people of Mousehole do not charge and hopefully never will thanks to the generosity of the voluntary contributions made by you to our collectors.
