Beams of light from Jubilee Tower

Tests of the laser beam from Jubilee Tower have been conducted nightly this week

Sunday sees celebrations to mark the 200th anniversary of the laying of the foundation stone for Jubilee Tower on the top of Moel Famau.

The celebrations begin at 2pm with live music, street dancing and circus entertainment at the Bwlch Pen Barras car park.

Then, in an echo of the original event when 5,000 people walked to the summit of Moel Famau to see the foundation stone being laid, there will again be a procession to the site of the tower starting at 4.45pm.

Community artists Ben Davies and Judith Wood from Corwen have been holding lantern-making workshops for children who will join in the procession.

At the top there will be a celebration with samba bands, laser show, search light and fireworks.

The sides of the tower will also be lit with video projection using images and text created by members of the public.

If you're attending the event please feel free to add any photos you take to our Flickr group of photos of the Clwydian Range.

The Jubilee Tower 200 website has further details of all events as well as a Share your memories section where people have been leaving their stories about visits to the tower.

Note: Thanks to artist Chris Oakley for sharing the photos in this weblog which were taken this week during his tests of the laser beam.
