Christmas Lights at Mousehole

17th December - 6th January

Mousehole Harbour Lights Carolaire and Switch on Saturday 16th. December, at 7.00pm.

Christmas Lights at Mousehole

Mousehole Harbour Lights Carolaire and Switch for 2017 is Saturday 16th. December 2017, at 7.00pm.

There will be an open-air Carolaire service at the entrance to the North Quay. The 'Carolaire Choir', comprising of the Mousehole Male Voice Choir, Members of the Mousehole Methodist Church and friends from the community together with the Pendeen Silver Band, will lead the community singing. This year the lights will be switched on by Mr Richard and Mrs Sue Ward.

If the weather is wet, the Carolaire service will be held in Mousehole Methodist Church.

The lights will remain on each evening between 5pm and 11pm from Friday 17th December 2017 until Saturday 6th January 2018. With the exception of 19th December, when the lights will be dimmed between 8-9pm in memory of the Penlee Lifeboat Disaster.

The Christmas lights in Mousehole are a stunning sight, with floating displays of lights in the harbour and around the streets that are filled with the aroma of mulled wine and festive food. You’ll see a fantastic display of sea serpents, fishing boats and whales colourfully lighting up one of Cornwall’s most welcoming harbours. Centrepiece is the millennium Celtic cross on St Clement Island, powered ever so greenly by a wind generator.

The village is ablaze with colour whilst the lights are on and to really appreciate the displays, walk around the narrow streets and follow the winding strings of lanterns as they disappear around the corner into yet another street barely wide enough to walk through. Have a browse around the local gift shops and stop for a meal and a drink in one of village restaurants, cafes or pubs.
