MAP: Wickford houses with great Christmas lights displays

We’ve scoured local Facebook groups and created the map below of houses in Wickford that have fantastic Christmas lights displays!

We don’t know the exact house numbers so have given a rough idea of where you should head to.

The weather outside is delightful…

We know many of you are thinking about your summer holidays…

But we're excited as there's only six months to Christmas and five months 'til the Wickford at Christmas Street Fair!

Christmas is always somewhere in the minds of the committee members as we work year-round to organise and raise funds for the street fair and lights.

What we’ve been up to

  • Visiting local councils to hear about funding opportunities
  • Meeting with businesses in Wickford and nearby to generate support and donations
  • Securing the permits and facilities to make the event happen
  • Gathering stall and entertainment requests
  • Updating and refreshing the pages on our website including a 2017 photo gallery

Funding update

It takes £4,000 to put up the Christmas lights in Wickford every year and around £9,000 to put on the street fair event. We receive some money from the council and groups but the rest comes from donations and sponsorship made by local residents and businesses.

We can buy new lights if even more money is raised!

If you can help in any way, please click here to donate or click here to look at sponsorship options

The best way to get updates is to like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter or on Instagram. You can RSVP to the event on Facebook here.

Our About Us page has been updated with FAQs but if you have any other questions don't hesitate to contact us.

Happy Holidays!
