Twenty Five Years | Angarrack Christmas Lights

This year (2011) the Angarrack Christmas Lights will be 25 years old.

The concept started when a few of the villagers got together to create lights and displays in their own and neighbours gardens. They soon moved into the streets and strung lights along the roadside.

A few years ago the lights became themed and are now based on the Twelve Days of Christmas.

The displays have developed along the years as well, starting with coloured bulbs attached to wooden frames wrapped in tinsel and developing into the more modern animated displays we enjoy now.

The lights are designed and manufactured in the village and as the expertise has increased so has the complexity and design of the lights.

The partridge in a pear tree is a six foot square with the Partridge depicted in coloured lights and held in place on a steel frame.

The more birds the bigger the light! Seven Swans A Swimming The seven swans appear to be swimming in the stream that runs through the village and the Eight maids can be seen milking the cows who wag their tails in appreciation, tickling the chin of one of the maids.

The Nine Ladies dance in unison in the square and the Ten Lords leap over the river trying to get away from the crocodiles.

The Eleven Pipers, who do pipe music, dance around a castle that is so big it has to be placed in a field on the outskirts of the village!  The light is around 20 metres long and 12 metres high!with Father Christmas running away from the crocodiles.

The Twelve Drummers drumming have to be seen to be believed, with a lovely finale for Father Christmas and those pesky crocodiles..

Throughout the year the villagers come together for fund raising activities and the lights and electricity are funded by voluntary donations.

It really is a story of a village working together for the enjoyment of all.

We attract visitors from all over the South West.

The lights are switched on last aturday in November and are then on every night up to and including Twelfth Night (5th January)
