We welcomed in the festive season to Swansea in style on Sunday 20 November with our Christmas Parade!

Dancers, bands, choirs, floats, inflatables, light up characters, princesses, superheroes and much more were on display – including Santa himself who brought some festive magic with him to turn on the Christmas Lights.

Don’t worry if you missed out, or you just can’t wait until next year – check out our highlights video below!

We’ll see you again next year!

See all your favourite princesses and superheroes, be mesmerised by magical light up costumes, and soak up the festive cheer from the hundreds of young people from city community groups who’ve jumped at the chance to be a part of this year’s parade.

You’ll be able to see light-up reindeers, the Princesses’ carriage, characters from the much-loved musical Frozen and more, all  taking to city centre streets as the curtain goes up for the Christmas countdown. And most importantly, see Santa arrive in Swansea and switch on the Christmas lights throughout the city centre!

With returning parade favourites as well as new additions, lights, music, snow machines and Santa himself, get ready to welcome the festive season in style!

Two large Christmas trees were lit up – one at the top of Castle Square sponsored by John Pye Auctions. and one outside The Dragon Hotel, sponsored by Swansea Working.


There will be loud noises, flashing lights and special effects throughout the Parade – if you need somewhere a bit quieter to enjoy the parade, the lower part of the Kingsway (St. Helen’s Road end) plus the top of High Street and Orchard Street will be the quietest part of the route. Please be aware though that the nature of a parade means that noise and lights will be present throughout. If you have any concerns and want to discuss further, please contact us at 01792 635428. An accessible viewing area will be available on Princess Way and Orchard Street.
