Christmas Lights in support of the R.N.L.I.
Sunday, 1 December. About 3:30 p.m. Starting from the Visitor Centre. Admission charges from 3:00 p.m. by donation to R.N.L.I. 01237 431781
Christmas is a magical time at Clovelly. A local brass band leads the procession down to the harbour and accompanies Christmas carols sung with the Torridge Male Voice Choir. A hog roast, punch and mince pies follow and Father Christmas makes a surprise visit. At about 5 p.m. the switch is thrown and the entire village and harbour are lit up. It's a fantastic sight and there is a grand finale of fireworks to finish off.
