New Mills – #lightupchristmas

After the great success of #lightupnewmills as part of the New Mills Festival in September, Visit New Mills and New Mills Festival are now planning to #lightupchristmas.

Starting from Friday 4 December and running throughout the Christmas period!

Everyone can join in by lighting up their homes, shops, gardens and businesses with any Christmas theme. #lightupchristmas will allow locals to enjoy the festive period whenever is convenient, with no set route, by exploring different neighbourhoods and seeing what creations have been made.

There are so many ways to get involved:

Work with your neighbours and fill the street with festive cheer: 

Turn your windows into shadow screens or works of art using coloured paper and paint.

Hang up fairy lights on their own or in bottles and jars.

Or just use your standard Christmas lights, but let people know

Possible themes:

  • Christmas Carols, Nativity, Winter Creatures, Christmas Movies,
  • Father Christmas, Snow People, Elves, Toys, Christmas Trees,
  • Gifts, Christmas Music, Winter Wonderland, Santa’s Workshop, Ugly Sweaters, Christmas Masquerade Ball, Christmas Around the World, Christmas Candyland, Nutcracker, Christmas Trains, Angels…….

Register your house/business here , where it will be added with a couple of days to an interactive google map showing the locations taking part and list of addresses/streets.

Remember to share your photos using the hashtag #lightupchristmas

Note – Google Map new registrations do not appear instantly but are added within a few days.
