Illumination Street Week

Illumination Street is an annual event that celebrates the passion, flair and effort that people across Britain undertake to brighten up their streets in the build-up to Christmas.

It’s cold outside but gardens can still dazzle all through winter. And festive displays give streets a huge lift on gloomy nights, shining a festive light on spectacular shrubs and trees.

A decade ago, it was just a few hardy souls who went wild for Christmas. But with the advent of inexpensive, reliable LED lighting, gardens up and down the country are transformed into attention-grabbing winter wonderlands throughout December. We want to celebrate the best displays across Britain, from those dedicated souls who raise money for charities, to others who just want to make their streets sparkle. These displays can really brighten up communities as the nights draw in – and anything that encourages an inclusive community experience through their garden lighting displays is a good thing.

The aim of Illumination Street is to inspire adults and children to use their imagination and light up the country during the festive season. And anyone who participates can get the recognition they deserve, with the chance to win fabulous prizes in our Illumination Street competition.

So take part, share your displays and use the hashtag #IlluminationStreetWeek on social media.
