In December 2019, Solva will transform into a Living Advent Calendar.

Each night, from 1 to 24 December, at least one decorated window will be revealed from 5 to 10pm.  The windows will then stay alight every evening until Christmas Eve and beyond.

Check out the dates below for when the windows will be lit for the first time, and then find them on the map.  Pick up a map from Bay View Store, Window on Wales or Solva Memorial Hall, or download one.
