Design a Christmas Light Competition!

Last Year's winning light in place on the Town Hall

It might seem that summer has only just arrived BUT, can you help us to create a super new Christmas Light for Witney Town Council’s Christmas lights display?

The competition is open to any child currently at Primary School in Witney and we also welcome entries from children enrolled in Witney community groups, such as Brownies, Beavers and others, as well as entries from primary age children resident in Witney.

The winning design will be turned into a super-size 1.5m x 1.5m light, which will be installed on the Town Hall this year as an integral part of the town’s Christmas display.

The Town Council also displays some, still serviceable winning lights, from previous years.

Some tips for creating a good design.

  • Fill the space with your Christmas themed design so that it touches the edge of the frame
  • Keep it simple so that it can easily be created using lights.
  • Choosing to design something we don’t currently have will improve your chance of having your design selected. We have a bauble, Christmas pud, star, robin, penguin and candy cane.
