Lutterworth Christmas Lights Switch On 2018

Lutterworth Christmas Lights Switch On 2018

The morning of the Christmas Lights Switch On began as a gloriously sunny and sharp winter's day and we were overwhelmed by the sheer number of you who came out in the evening to enjoy the festivities.

The evening began with Santa riding through the town centre on his sleigh with his own private escort, Olaf! In his grotto, Santa attracted a huge crowd of children, all eager to tell him what they would like for Christmas. Just next door to the grotto, Lutterworth Town Band entertained passers by in the Memorial Gardens. More »

The funfair was again a major attraction whilst Cross Counties Radio kicked off the on stage entertainment (sponsored by Gazeley UK Ltd). They warmed up the crowds and introduced the school choirs and recording artists, who each sang their favourite Christmas songs to the delight of the huge audience. Many of the proud parents of the children performing could not take the smile of their faces before three of our local retailers basked in the glory of winning the Best Illuminated (Sheilar's Craft Corner), Best Dressed (All Wrapped Up) and Most Innovative (Age Concern Lutterworth & District) shop window competitions. This year, the people of Lutterworth voted in an additional category for Lutterworth's Choice (Ishka) – their hampers kindly donated by Waitrose.

The Lutterworth Town Mayor, Councillor Brian Poulter was on stage to switch on the Christmas lights, which was followed by the traditional fireworks display (sponsored by Max Electrical, Sweet Sisters, First Class Tyres and The Shambles), greeted with ooohs and ahhhs from the vast crowd gathered in the Town Hall square.

Throughout the evening hot mulled wine was enjoyed in Lutterworth Christmas mugs whilst there was also an opportunity to do a spot of late night Christmas shopping in the shops, bars and café's that had stayed open in the town. Neil Green Catering put on a wide variety of street food and kindly fed all of the hungry volunteer marshals who had worked hard (for free) all day/night!!

Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end and so that was it for another year. The lights are shining and everyone went home happy, with us all looking forward to the next big event, Christmas Day!

Lutterworth Town Council would like to thank all the local businesses who sponsored the event and donated their time and money to ensure the evening was a great success. We would like to particularly thank both the Rotary Club of Lutterworth Wycliffe and Lutterworth Rotary Club who support the event year after year and the many other volunteer marshals!! So a very special thank you to everyone who helped as without them this community event could not take place.

Lutterworth Town Council would like to also thank:
PSC Fire Prevention
Hammond Automotive
Inspire
Lutterworth Fire and Rescue Service
Rugby Air Cadets
Lidl
