The Tewkesbury Christmas Lights is solely financially supported by the kind people of Tewkesbury each year. The voluntary committee organise the Lights Switch on and use their own time to fundraise to keep this annual event going in Tewkesbury.
The annual expenditure costs around £8000 to ensure that the lights are fully tested, it costs a significant amount to put on the switch on event in November, this includes insurance, road closure fees, signage, hire of first aid cover. We are also continuously improving the infrastructure to ensure that the lights are to the latest quality standards and that all connections are safe
