Christmas lights offer the perfect excuse to venture out on these cold December nights, have a mug of mulled wine and stroll around taking in the sights, sounds and delicious spicy smells.! We braved the gale force winds and rain, and wrapped up in our RAIN coats to join in the festivities at Mousehole, as the town switched on its famous Christmas lights for the 50th year!
Preparations begin as early as September to get the near 10,000 bulbs and over 5 1/2 miles of cable in place across the village ready for the 3,000 to 4,000 spectators who flock to see this twinkling village. All the lights are made in the village by the local volunteers and tell a story of the village’s customs, history and its maritime heritage.
