Sidney Road Christmas Lights Show


Free - donations welcome towards Freshfield Animal Rescue


This will be the seventh Christmas Show produced by Sidney Road Lights. It is a family concern with Steve, Jan and Tim designing the show and making all the props.

The lights are in fact pixels which are a small plastic capsule containing three leds red, green and blue. Using a special controller these leds can be controlled individually enabling complex patterns, photos and videos to be shown. The show consists entirely of leds, there are no traditional light bulbs therefore reducing running costs. Working in conjunction with friends in the US there are more than twenty sequences all set to music which will be shown over the two weeks of shows.

During the shows sweets and hot chocolate plus many other gifts will be available provided free of charge by our generous sponsors Chocolate Whirled who have their artisan chocolate shop and dessert cafe on Manchester Road. In return for all the edible goodies we ask for a donation, however small, for Freshfields Animal Rescue who the lightshows have supported since the very beginning.

Freshfields have a site at Ince Blundell and care for all homeless and injured animals of all shapes and sizes. Having collected £2100 for them last Christmas your help is needed to break this record!


The event starts with the Lighting Up Party on Saturday 17th December at 6pm, this will be hosted by the superb Sandgrounder Radio team, extra goodies will be available too! The shows will continue ever night (even if it's raining) upto and including Sunday 1st January. Shows start at 16:30 every evening and run every hour and half-hour with the last show starting at 21:00. Each show lasts around fifteen minutes with a short break until the next shows. Shows will be varied during each day.

Please remember you are in a residential area, please be courteous to the neighbours, do not park across drives or enter gardens and be aware of cars passing. Please arrive and leave quietly. Reach down the back of the sofa and bring all your loose coins for our collection for Freshfields Animal Rescue, we will be trialling contactless donations fixed at £3 this year.
