Porthleven’s Christmas lights display will be switched on this evening amid festive celebrations in the port.

Porthleven Town Band will be playing carols at the Harbour Head between 7pm and 8pm, with the lights switch on taking place at 7.15pm.

Shortly afterwards Santa will arrive and this year, rather than make his way along the harbour, he will head to the boatyard to hand out sweets to the children courtesy of Sharon and Paul Edwards at the post office.

There will also be a number of craft sales to browse.
