Angarrack Christmas Lights

Angarrack Christmas Lights started a long time ago - in 1986 (see our Thirty Years page for more information) but really started to increase in complexity with the switch from bulbs to rope lights after the flooding of the village New Year 2003.

There are a variety of lights - many of the lights are animated - and the sequence of the Twelve Days of Christmas.

The main lights are designed and made in the village and are unique to Angarrack.

The Twelve Days of Christmas sequence was built up as funds allowed and completed in 2010 with Twelve Drummers Drumming.

How Can I Help Support the Angarrack Christmas Lights?

Residents also add their own lights - either special commissions like the enormous Merry Christmas and Nadelek Kernowek in Steamers Hill, the exotic Flamingos off Grist Lane or the Cherry Trees Garden Supplies advert in Riverside - as well as smaller lights including delightful deer, 3d trains, and pretty holly leaves and berries - can you spot them all?
