Sidmouth’s annual Christmas Lights switch on returns this year on 20 November
Once again, Sidmouth Town Council is providing the festive display along the streets. The grand switch on this year will be performed by Di Fuller of Sid Valley Help, winner of the Sustainable Sidmouth Champions Awards for Community.
To help get you in the Christmas mood, local duo Vine and Dandy will be providing music and
entertainment from 4.30pm. The draw for the ‘Golden Ticket’ will take place at 5.15pm and is a
chance for local Primary School children, who will have received a ticket at school, to win a huge £100
toy voucher generously donated by Gliddon’s Toy Shop of Church Street.
The Golden Ticket draw will be followed by the Christmas Light switch on at 5.30pm. The lighting is
again supplied by Torbay Display and is billed as a contrast to the 2020 scheme. The Chair of
Sidmouth Town Council, Councillor Ian Barlow “This year, it is entirely fitting that Di Fuller is switching
the Christmas Lights on. She and Sid Valley Help have been invaluable throughout the most difficult
of times and continues to work tirelessly for our community.”
The Sidmouth Christmas light display is funded by Sidmouth Town Council, kindly supported by
Sidmouth Chamber of Commerce. 20 November is shaping up to be a sparkling tonic and start to
the Christmas festivities in Sidmouth.
