* The Silver Band play Christmas music in Chirk Castle chapel.
Llangollen Silver Band helped visitors to get the Christmas spirit when they played in the chapel at Chirk Castle on Sunday.
Over a number of sessions they performed a mixture of traditional carols of seasonal tunes such as White Christmas and Winter Wonderland.
The castle had a number of Christmas attractions including Santa's grotto for youngsters in the garden, a nativity scene in stables near the entrance and an elves' workshop.
To warm people on a cold day the National Trust property also had roasted chestnuts and mulled wine on sale from a vendor in the courtyard and a seasonal menu on offer in the restaurant.
