Workshop Illuminations

Keeping Christmas Sparkly!

While we always take seasonal decoration seriously, we decided to do something a little different for Christmas, and we're staging a US style Christmas light show.

The lights are currently on and looking shiny from 3:30pm every day. We'll be running shows with music every night at 4:30 and again at 6:30, from Saturday 16th December until Sunday 31st December inclusive. We're planning to be on right across Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day, so if you fancy a target for a Christmas afternoon walk, we're here. We'll be switching the playlist daily, so there should be fresh material if you fancy a few visits.

We want everyone to be able to enjoy the lights if they want to. If you have concerns or difficulties coming to see the shows, please get in touch. We can help out with any and all concerns related to accessibility, COVID (and reduced immunity), photosensitive conditions, etc. We can also organise for zero-contact viewings. If we can help out, we actively want to. Please drop us a message to this page, or get in touch via email at

Current planned show dates - These will all be at 4.30PM and 6.30PM...

    For all the information when we have it, you can follow us on Facebook, or check back here for updates.

    Why Are We Doing This?

    It's purely for fun - there's no commercial interest here at all. We're just here for the sparkly lights, and the challenge of getting it all going.

    That said, over Christmas we're supporting Cranbourne School in their efforts to refurbish their swimming pool. Not only is the pool hugely beneficial for their students, it's a valuable resource for local primary schools and the community, including preschool and Mums & Babies groups. The current structure is 45 years old and in need of work. It would be a shame to lose this community resource, so we'd like to help them out as much as we can.

    If you've enjoyed any of our videos or live shows, please consider making a donation - it really would be appreciated. Our usual Elf will be in charge of the bucket (and candy canes!) at the shows for cash donations, or we can accept contactless payments this year too... Look out for our donation point, or ask on of our team (running things, looking panicked, most likely in a stupid hat) and they'll point you in the right direction. Finally, online via PayPal is still an option. Donations are 100% optional but very gratefully received.

    Where Are We?

    We're based in Saxon Way, in Lychpit, Basingstoke, RG24 8SA... Once you get into the road, you can't really miss us.

    If you're coming to see the lights, please be considerate of our neighbours, and consider parking a short distance away and walking to us - The Lychpit Centre Car Park is a 5 minute walk away, and may be a good place to leave your car.
