New Year Walk In

You are invited to take part in a short walk leaving the town square at 10:30pm on New Year's Eve - there is no pre-entry - just turn up suitably dressed. Carrying burning torches to light the way, the procession follows the "Mari", a decorated horse's skull carried on a pole by the leader, to the Abernant Lake Hotel on the outskirts of town. Here there is a re-enactment of the ancient Welsh tradition of "Mari Lwyd", where there is an exchange of challenges and banter in verse between the bearer of the "Mari" and the occupants, in an endeavour to gain admission and refreshment. The bar is open for swift sustenance before returning to the town square in time for the midnight celebrations.
