The Mayor of Llandudno, Cllr Angela O’Grady held her Civic Sunday celebration on Sunday 28th July 2019. The day commenced with a Parade, led by Llandudno Town Band including the Mayor, Councillors, Civic dignitaries, military, civilian and community organisations, to the war memorial for a wreath laying. The Parade then proceeded to Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic Church for the Civic Service, presided over by the Mayor’s Chaplain, Reverend Father Moses Amune, msp. After the Service, the Parade reformed and returned to the Town Hall, where the Mayor took the salute, before proceeding to the St George’s Hotel for luncheon. As well as Councillors and Civic dignitaries, representatives from a number of voluntary and community organisations within Llandudno also attended the luncheon as a thank you for all the work they undertake throughout the year within the community. The Mayor was particularly delighted to welcome Mr A Hughes of the Home Front Museum and Mr A Rigby, as her guest speakers.
Due to Covid-19, the Llandudno Christmas Parade for 2021 is currently under discussion and this page will be updated in due course.
If the event does go ahead it will take place on Saturday, 4th December 2021.
This year’s event is scheduled to be held on Sunday 7th November 2021 at 18:20pm from North Shore beach, Llandudno.
Should the weather be adverse on the Sunday, the back-up date is Monday 8th November 2021 at 19:00pm.
Please note that both dates are subject to the weather permitting, and subject to change or cancellation if there is any change to Covid-19 regulations.
This beach event is very tide dependent, with up to 1.5 hours being required in advance of the display to safely set up on the beach (at around 150 metres from the promenade) and a suitable time following the approximate 20-minute display to safely remove equipment from the beach. Tides and operating times are, therefore, carefully, and thoroughly assessed.
In 2021, these are the closest dates to the 5th of November at which the tide time and range is most favourable and safe to operate.
Council would be appreciative:
- Of any donations on the night towards the display. Collectors will be out and about on the promenade with collecting buckets.
- If social distancing could please be observed.
- Please note that fireworks (including sparklers) are not permitted within the event site.

Llandudno has been twinned since 1988 with the town of Wormhout situated in Northern France. The Town Council supports and arranges cultural visits between Llandudno and Wormhout each year to allow interested members of the public to engage in fellowship and friendship with our French counterparts.
Exchange from Wormhout
Just over 50 people from Wormhout travel to Llandudno for a weekend of hospitality with host families who volunteer to accommodate the French families during their stay. The visit usually takes place in April with a number of visits in and around Llandudno arranged during the weekend.
Wormhout Football Trip
Usually occurring in May each year, a team of 20 pupils from local primary schools, with their teachers, are invited to compete in the annual Wormhout International Junior Soccer Tournament. As well as taking part in the tournament, the pupils are able to immerse themselves in the history of the town and the surrounding area.
July Visit to Wormhout
Each July, a visit to Wormhout is arranged to coincide with the Wormhout carnival and music festival, with a group of 55 people from Llandudno participating. All participants contribute to the cost of the trip. Accommodation is provided by French host families and the Wormhout Town Council. Those on the visit are able to learn about the history of Wormhout, paying tribute to those who gave their lives during the Second World War and in particular those who died during the Wormhout massacre in 1940.
Sadly no Town Twinning visits have been able to take place in 2020 and 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic but we look forward to welcoming visitors from our Twin Town and also visiting Wormhout in due course, once Covid-19 restrictions have eased.
