Melksham Christmas Lights Switch on 2021 is at 6pm on Saturday 4th December

This year the Fayre and switch on is entirely organised by Melksham Town Council, we are simply providing the lights, and take over for the 'switch on' itself!


The lights will go on at 6pm and be followed by a short burst of pyrotechnics

2020 was a huge success for our group and despite everything thrown at our entirely voluntary team we managed to create the most wonderful display which was enjoyed by thousands - not all at once of course!


Lots of the 2020 plans had to be shelved due to Covid, we wanted a 'immersive' display that allowed a certain amount of control by the viewers, pressing buttons to start changing colours, starting fake snow falling - and lots more. 

For 2021 we wanted to go that step further and create the best ever - we can do that with your help! Want to donate? Follow the link above, as ever our plans have been the victim of time and money - but we are aiming to do our best and create something a little different to last year.

This video created by Jeff at Melksham Town Council along with Ben from Melksham News tells the tale better than some words ever could...

Thanks to our 2020 supporters
