Join the Brightlingsea Christmas Lights Trail

Let's light up the town!

We're putting the bright in Brightlingsea!

Despite the cancellation of the hugely popular Brightlingsea Christmas Tree Festival in All Saints' Church this year, the festival committee has created a Covid-friendly event that everyone can take part in - the Brightlingsea Christmas Lights Trail. The trail will start at All Saints' with a display in the churchyard, taking in the lights in shops around the High Street and Victoria Place, and end at the Hard where you'll find even more specially-made illuminations.

And how can you get involved? It's easy! We want to make a trail of Christmas lights from All Saints' Church to the Town Hard with illuminated Christmas trees, decorated windows, flashing Santas and spectacular snowmen – whatever sort of festive lights you have, get them up, be a part of the trail and brighten up the town! Just add your address to the list with the form on this page and we'll put you on the Trail map - that way everyone will know where to see your illuminations.

You can sign up for the Trail at any time, and we'll reveal the entries and the Trail Map on December 5, so make sure your lights are up by then! Entries will close on December 3, with the main Trail events taking place over the weekends of December 12 & 13  and December 19 & 20. Brightlingsea Info will be keeping you up to date with all the lights news – let's make this a good one!
