Join us at the Cricklade Christmas Lights 2018 Event

After sponsoring the Cricklade Christmas Lights Switch On event for the previous four consecutive years – GWP Group are once again delighted to offer our services and continued support to the local community for the sixth year, by providing assistance for the continued success and enjoyment of the popular Cricklade festivities.

Please continue below for additional details on the event.

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 sequentially includes a festive carol service creates a festive atmosphere whereby members of the local community gather to share the experience.

The planning for this year’s event began in July and was held at The Barista by which members of the public were also invited to come along with support and suggestions for the event.

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 each year – consequently over a thousand people congregate to the Cricklade High Street to celebrate 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 (2017) was considered a success enjoyed by all – especially the children of which a record number of children visited Santa and his Grotto!

The event also included a child friendly talent show in which children from the local schools participated in the show for prizes. The first place prize included a gift voucher for the lucky winner to spend as they chose. Entertainment for the adults in last year’s festive activities included The Cricklade Band who are set to attend again this year.

More highlights from previous years have seen: children’s entertainment, carol services, children’s magic shows, The Cricklade Band, the local Community choir and visits from Santa, Anna and Elsa (the cast from Frozen).

See for yourself…

Take a look at the video below to see highlights of the 2012 event, as documented by the Cricklade Bugle

Cricklade Christmas Lights 2018 Entertainment

The Christmas Lights switch-on event will begin at St Sampson’s Church at 17.15pm 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.

Likewise to last year and other previous years in this event The Cricklade Band who perform live music at private functions and local events are set to support the switch-on again this year by providing merry music to add to the festive atmosphere.

Originally formed in 1887, the Cricklade band have established recognition in the local community for their live music and are reputable for their services at local functions, parties and social events. The band prides themselves on being an up-to-date, entertaining community band and class themselves as a brass big-band.

Join us and come along to the Christmas light switch on this year to watch them spreading Christmas cheer.
