THE 'Light Up Calne For Christmas' initiative is back for 2021 and the map is beginning to take shape.

The idea for the campaign came from Calne resident, Claire Willoughby last year who wanted to make Christmas special even though the traditional Light Festival had been cancelled due to the pandemic.

Christmas lightsAlthough the Festival is scheduled to take place this year, Claire is keen to repeat the event to make Calne the brightest town in Wiltshire for the festive period.

The date for the 'Big Switch On' will be 26th November at 6pm.

The town lights will switch on at 6pm on the 27th November all being well with any Coronavirus restrictions.

Claire has already started planning her own display which may include some 8ft Nutcrackers!

She told us "The sooner people make plans the better, we might make 500 homes this year."

So, if you would like to join in this year, let us know and we will add you to our 2021 map.
