* Santa on the rocks.
And now Santa has been practising his abseiling skills ready for his arrival at Llangollen’s annual Christmas Festival.As our exclusive picture shows, the intrepid old man with a beard has been brushing up his rope technique on the cliffs overlooking the town ready.
“You may have been wondering how I manage to get down all those tall chimneys – and now you know,” he said.“It’s almost a year since I got my ropes out, so a quick practice didn’t go amiss.”
The festival will be held on Saturday November 28 and starts with the big parade at 1pm.Christmas lights will be switched on in Castle Street at 5pm.
There will be stalls and entertainment on the Tourist Information Steps and in the surrounding streets. Sion Corn himself will be in his grotto.Once the lights have been turned on the festivities will end with a firework display.
Proceeds from the event will once again be donated to Air Ambulance Wales.
