Remembrance Parade

The Town Council, local groups and members of the community pay tribute to those who have fought and died for freedom and an end to tyranny.  The service of remembrance in the church is followed by a wreath laying ceremony and a parade through the town. 

Victorian Christmas

Beaumaris kicks off the Christmas Season with a festival of Christmas cheer and goodwill.  Stalls dotted around the town are an opportunity to start your Christmas shopping.  And at the end of the afternoon a special visitor turns up to lead a procession along the High Street for the Christmas tree lights to be switched on.


Hot Pennies

A traditional throw back to the days of the Boxing Day hunt.  Today the Mayor of Beaumaris scatters hot pennies from the balcony of the Bulkeley Hotel while children scamper below to collect them.

New Year's Eve Fireworks

Ring out the old, ring in the new.  As the clocks strike midnight to bring another year to an end in Beaumaris, the castle is is lit up by a dazzling display of fireworks.  Join the crowds in Castle Square to admire the show and welcome the start of a new year.
