Russell Erwood, Chairman of Conwy Chamber of Trade, said: “The parade is organised to encourage visitors to come to a free event in Conwy and see what the town has to offer.

“Conwy is a wonderful town for Christmas shopping as it has so many individually owned shops selling unusual items.

“The parade will include the Morris dancing group Clerical Error who will bring lots of colour and music to the event.

“They will be complemented by fire performers from Inferno and drummers from Batala Bangor.”

The event started 12 years ago, with around a dozen torches , and has grown year by year to more than 100 torches.
