Tonight – 28 November 2020 – is the night the Llandaff North Festivals group turns on the Christmas lights. It will be a virtual event at 17:00 on Facebook and YouTube Live this year because of the pandemic. Details on this poster, and you can scan the QR code to get the link to join in.
Fresh off the SD card, here are some photos of today’s Llandaff North Festival in a boiling hot Hailey Park. It was a big festival this year with lots of stalls, animals, birds, barbeque, beer, rides, bouncy castles and fun.
It was perfect weather last night at Hailey Park for Llandaff North Festival and Friends of Hailey Park’s night-before-the-Festival free open air music, food and beer night under the stars above Hailey Park. Here are some souvenir pictures..
Salkaara restaurant in Llandaff North have been celebrating the Indian state of Kerala’s New Year with a special vegetarian feast today.
There was a vast variety of foods served on a virtual banana leaf and it was delicious.
Here are some photos taken early evening of the big switch on. Santa Claus came and rode on the land train. There was brass band, choral and duo music.
Here are some photos I took tonight of the grand switch-on of Llandaff North’s Christmas Lights. This is always a great occasion and a coming together of the whole community. Dil Jeera opened its doors this year to serve some delicious short eats. Tongwynlais Brass Band set the Christmas mood, there were choirs, including the new Community Choir which sounded cracking! The 2nd Llandaff Scouts were out taking surveys about local facility to help secure a much-needed grant from the Lottery. The night was rounded off, as usual, with fireworks. Here are the photos, with thanks to @DafyddT for the final pic, to the Festival Committee for putting on such a show and to the volunteers staffing the diversion points by the Railway and the Party Shop.
Lew of the Llandaff North Festival is the key contact if you fancy joining the Llandaff North Community Choir. There’s a practice on Wednesday nights at the Steiner School and the details are all on this poster.
