GWP Group are proud to again be sponsoring the Cricklade Christmas lights event in 2018

Cricklade Community Lights Team

In addition to the Cricklade Scouts, the Cricklade Community Lights team – a group of volunteers – plan, organise and hold the annual event. The annual switch-on, which includes a carol service, creates a festive atmosphere for members of the local community to gather tand share the experience.

The fun filled event will include a carol service, live music or talent act, a choir and a visit from Santa for the little ones. There will also be a wide range of food and drink stalls.

More than one thousand people are likely to brave the cold and congregate on the Cricklade High Street to get into the Christmas spirit.

Previous Years

The success and popularity of this event from its start has been highlighted in the rise of turnout numbers each year.

Last year’s event (2018) was considered a success enjoyed by all – especially the children of which a record number of children visited Santa and his Grotto!

Previous events have also included a child friendly talent show, in which children from the local schools participated to win prizes (the first place prize included a gift voucher for the lucky winner to spend as they chose). Entertainment for the adults included The Cricklade Band, who are set to attend again this year.

More highlights from previous years have seen a wide range of children’s entertainment, carol services, children’s magic shows, the local Community choir and visits from Santa, Anna and Elsa (the cast from Frozen).

See for yourself…

The Christmas Lights switch-on event will begin at St Sampson’s Church at approximately 17.00pm with a lantern parade to Cricklade High Street where the switch-on will take place. The lanterns for the parade will be decorated by both St. Sampson’s and Thames Pre-School children.

The entertainment kicks off at 5.30pm – with the carol service then starting at 6.15pm. Father Christmas aka Santa and his light up reindeers, will then arrive at 6.30pm.

As with previous years The Cricklade Band, who perform live music at private functions and local events, are set to support the switch-on by providing merry music to add to the festive atmosphere.

Originally formed in 1887, the Cricklade band are well known in the local community for their live music and are a popular choice at local functions, parties and social events. They pride themselves on being an up-to-date, entertaining, big brass band.
