It is with heavy hearts that we announce our annual Christmas lights up event will not take place in 2020.

With so much uncertainty surrounding events and live performances at this time, plus the unknown conditions we would have to operate under, it is impossible to predict how we could safely hold our event this year.

We also rely on the support and sponsorship of all our wonderful local businesses to help fund our event and given how difficult it has been already for everyone this year, it would be unfair of us to ask and expect them to contribute when many have not long reopened themselves.

Instead we will begin fundraising ready to return next year on Sunday 28th November 2021 – bigger and better than ever!

Lots of love from all of the Paddock Wood Lights Up team xx
