The ambitious project lit the 14th century church of St Tysilio and Church Island. They created a sound and light show bringing the community together to celebrate the Christmas story.

Youngsters will have the opportunity to visit Santa and his elves in his magical grotto hidden in the woods (£2.00pp). The adventurous can climb ‘Ice Mountain’ the highest slide in Europe.

Local food producers will are holding a market where food, produce and Christmas gifts can be tasted and purchased. A raffle will be held for two luxury hampers from Waitrose, Menai Bridge.

The event will also feature the town band Band Pres Porthaethwy.

“It is an opportunity for community groups to come together and raise funds. Menai Bridge is well known for the fair and the raft race we want to be known for holding a fabulous Winter Festival as well,” said Nigel McCann from the organising committee.

The event will take place on December 16 from 4pm until 8pm.
A park and ride service will operate from Ysgol David Hughes during the festival (£1 per car FREE bus).
