Take part in a walk leaving the town square at 10:30 on New Years’ Eve. Carry torches to light the way as the procession follows the ‘Mari’, a decorated horse skull carried on a pole by the leader. The walk ends at the Abernant Lake Hotel on the outskirts of town. Here there is a re-enactment of the Welsh tradition of ‘Mari Lwyd’, where there is an exchange of challenges & banter in verse between the leader & the occupants to gain admission & refreshment.
