The Christmas Lights Association was formed in 1991 with the sole purpose of continuing the provision of a Christmas Lights display in Thornbury.
It supports a small band of volunteers who give their time in all winds and weathers to maintain, repair, erect and take down the lights display that Thornbury has enjoyed for countless years!
We believe this to be of the order of 700 man hours of effort. The electricity for those fittings, is provided and hence ‘donated’ by the individual businesses. When not in use the fittings are stored at a local premises free of charge. In the true sense, this is a community led and funded display.
The lights display is renowned both locally and further afield. It draws numerous visitors to the town over the festive period. Many Councils have to pay a commercial rate for the provision of their lights display. Thornbury’s comes for free!
