Sidney Road Lights


Free - donations welcome towards Freshfield Animal Rescue


Family run spectacular Christmas light display synchronised to music controlled by computer. Centrepiece is a 7m high Christmas tree with over 4000 lights, new for 2021 is a 3.5m high model of The Leaning Tower of Pisa. The entire display has been built by our family and features over 30,000 lights in total with bespoke components imported from the US and China. Designing, building and testing the display is a year round hobby involving all the family, this will be our fourth year.

Despite talking about lights there are in fact no bulbs or lamps in the display, all the lights are pixels each of which contain red, green and blue leds all individually driven by dedicated controllers with data from multiple Raspberry Pi computers. This technology allows us to run musical sequences programmed to create mesmerising effects and patterns along with videos and photos in time with the music making for a captivating and free show suitable for all the family.

The show regularly attracts upto 200 people every evening with 500+ attending for our opening night, as well as being in local papers and radio interviews each year in 2019 we featured in a live broadcast by Granada Reports hosted by Paul Crone and Kerrie Gosney, in total more than 3000 people saw our previous display.

Each year we support Freshfields Animal Rescue, our last total was £1,600 with the target for 2021 being £2,000 which will keep the local charity running for just one day.

Our Lighting Up Party on 11th Dec will be hosted by Sandgrounder Radio with appearances by Starkidz Christmas Elves. During the evening we will be serving hot chocolate and thanks to sponsorship from Fletchers Solicitors handing out free sweets and childrens' gifts.

Saturday 18th will be our Christmas Party Night when we will be taking requests for our musical sequences as well as running a free to enter Childrens' competition for a Freshfields goody bag.

The shows commence at 6pm on Saturday 11th Dec and run every night whatever the weather from 4:30 pm until 9pm on the hour and every half hour. The hour and half-hour shows are different and each week the shows will change. Between Christmas and New Year we will be running film nights and ‘not Christmas music’ shows! Last show is on New Years Day 2022 at 9pm.
