Welcome to Christmas in Boston 2019!
The Christmas in Boston Community team are aiming to make the town lights display even bigger and better this year. Electricians and supporters have been busy behind the scenes throughout the summer months, making and preparing the lights and festive displays following the successful effort last year.
Christmas in Boston has held a number of fundraising events organised by Mick Small of MS Events throughout the year, including a Golf Day and Race night.
Christmas in Boston pens which were kindly donated by ‘Publicity Pens’ and ‘Acorn Taxis’ are available at £2 each from various outlets in the town.
See our dedicated post to find out where.
We Need Your Support
Christmas in Boston now need your support to help make this an even bigger success. Organisers of the Community Group want to hear from businesses who would like an illuminated Christmas tree for their premises, or some other festive display. A Just Giving Page is now available to enable the public to make donations towards LED wands to hand out to children on the night.
Boston Borough Council will match fund everything they raise up to a maximum of £10,000 for Christmas 2019 from the migration fund.
The stunning town centre display drew admiring comments last year. This year is planned to be even better with a few surprises. In addition to the Christmas tree in the town, there will be lights in the precinct, lights on town bridge, more lights at the Ingram Memorial, LED Christmas in Boston banner and larger Christmas trees on some of the roundabouts.
We are delighted to advise that Phillip Bosworth from SOS Pilgrim Hospital Group will be switching on the lights. Boston Fire station will be advertising their Christmas Float runs on the night. Revolver will be performing on the night after the Big Light switch on in the Market Place.
Switch On Event
There will be two staggered ‘Light Switch-Ons’ on Thursday November 21st November at 6.45pm. One will be in the Market Place when the Christmas tree near The Ingram Memorial will be the main focus, then another for Pescod Square. Switch on will be confirmed with the Boston Borough Council so watch this space for more details!
