Events in Cowbridge and Nearby Area: A Season of Vibrant Local Culture

As November rolls in, the streets of Cowbridge and surrounding communities brim with excitement. It’s a time when our tight-knit Welsh communities come together to revel in festive parades, watch winter plays, and enjoy the cheerful songs of local choirs. There’s a fair bit on offer for all age groups, so put on your coats and scarves, and let’s get cracking!

Cowbridge Christmas Events - Christmas Light Parade

Prepare yourself for a dose of festive cheer in Cowbridge Old Hall Gardens and Town Hall. Hosted on November 26, the Christmas Light Parade will light up the town from 4:15 pm, taking a route from the Broadshord through town to Druids Green, and then back to the Town Hall for a light switch-on ceremony. Be a sport and get involved—you could even win a prize for the most imaginative light design! Just remember, it’s all in the name of charity, as collections will be made for this year’s Mayor’s Charity Llamau, aimed at ending homelessness.

If it’s a bit of family-friendly entertainment you’re after, Cowbridge Panto: Elves Overboard promises to be a Christmas cracker! Held at a local venue, this pantomime is full to the brim with festive songs, elaborate costumes, and a whimsical storyline.
