weston-super-mare visit weston christmas lights switch on


Weston Town Council is delighted to announce that the town will be full of stars for our new Christmas lights design.

During the summer Weston Town Council took to the streets and online with a survey. You asked for better Christmas lights and we listened.

This year we have more lights than ever in the theme of stars with warm and white lights. We are covering more areas of the town with the inclusion of Orchard Street for the first time in many years. The Blakehay Theatre and Weston Museum will also have new lights. One of the Museums lights having been designed by Emily Fairhouse age 14 who won a competition to design a very special Christmas light which is being made from her drawing.

Despite the luxurious feel of these lights we have been able to provide them to the town with the same amount of money as last year.
Town Clerk Malcolm Nicholson said 'We are pleased to have secured improved Christmas Lights for our town this year, the new designs have a real 'wow factor'. Come and see for yourself'.

The Christmas light switch on is 23rd November 5.00pm will have a traditional feel. The Mayor has organised Mulled Wine and Minced pies (whilst stocks last). This will take place opposite Bright House on the Italian Gardens end of the High Street. 'Weston Brass band' will be playing giving the High street a Victorian feel.

The Mayor Cllr Mark Canniford said "I have asked for the Christmas light switch on to be a more traditional affair as we do lose Christmas in the whirl of the festive period. I wanted it to be far more inclusive and will be asking everyone to join me for a cup of Mulled Wine to toast the Start of the Christmas season. Please come along and enjoy the company of Weston Brass, see you there"

We hope you'll join us.
