Joanna Lumley turned on Brecon's Christmas lights on Saturday and the event was a huge success!

The film and television star is an advocate for the Gurkha Justice Campaign said her decision to take on the task was because “Brecon has always been such brave and generous hosts and defenders of their Gurkhas and Nepalese community.”
