On Saturday (24th November), the Barry Round Table Santa and Elves helped switch on Christmas in Barry alongside Gavin and Stacey star Nessa aka Ruth Jones.
Barry Round Table have been a fixture of the Christmas Lights Switch on for the last few years, with Santa located in his Grotto on King Square throughout the day.
This year, Santa and his Elves took to the stage before Nessa to update the crowd of 8,000+ on their Christmas plans. They were lucky enough to stick around to meet Nessa and switch on the Christmas lights alongside her, as well as Nathan and Patrick from Bro Radio.
The attendance followed the group announcing the first half of their Santa Sleigh Routes for 2019.
