Due to COVID-19 safety measures, there will be no Christmas lights switch-on event. However, we will still have Christmas lights and we will be creating an online film event to celebrate. Details to follow.
Weston Town Council puts on the Christmas lights every year and also the Christmas light switch on event.
During the summer 2019 Weston Town Council took to the streets and online with a survey. You asked for better Christmas lights and we listened.
In 2019 we have more lights than ever in the theme of stars with warm and white lights. We covered 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 had 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 was 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 previous years.
