Every year, like clockwork, the rural lanes just outside Tandragee are illuminated with an unmistakable festive glow, exuding all manner of lights and sights. It’s unmissable to the naked eye, and it can only be one thing.
Tim Hancock, of Tim’s Lights NI, lights up his garden every Christmas with a vast range of festive-themed displays – all to raise money for Marie Curie, a charity which provides support to people going through terminal illnesses.
The annual Christmas lights display has been a staple of Tandragee for a decade now, and to mark the anniversary, this year Tim decided to do things a little bit differently.
Alongside the familiar pieces, such as Santa’s sleigh and the Nativity scene, Tim marked 10 years with a grand launch on Friday night, which saw a tremendous range of light and sound, as Christmas trees, lightbulbs, and even a giant elf sang some well-known Christmas carols and songs!!
Tim’s goal is to share the true meaning of Christmas, with the Nativity display being the most important piece of the entire collection.
The display was even accompanied by fireworks, and festive-themed snacks which were provided to a select number of guests who were invited to attend the launch event at Tim’s house.
The night saw Tim’s fundraising surpass the fantastic amount of £30,000, and the lines are still open, with donations being taken by JustGiving.
You can visit the lights from 4.30pm-10pm each evening. No booking required.
100% of all money raised is given to Marie Curie.
