Harrogate at Christmas Group

5 Jul 2017 by John Fox

Harrogate at Christmas Group has been raising money to pay for the Christmas lights in Harrogate for the last 10 years.  As well as providing Christmas lights they also organise a Christmas Shop window competition and work with students from Harrogate College to design and construct a piece of Civic Sculpture to display in Harrogate over the Christmas period.

This year Daisybeck Studios, the Award Winning producers of The Yorkshire Vet are filming a programme Christmas in Harrogate featuring the Christmas Shop Window Competition, Harrogate Christmas lights and the Big Switch On, Harrogate Colleges Christmas sculpture, Harrogate Theatres Pantomime and the Harrogate Christmas Market.  The two 1 hour programmes commissioned by Channel 5 will be screened just before Christmas.  This is a golden opportunity for us to promote Harrogate as the place to visit at Christmas.

‘How Big Is Your Bauble?’ which is our main fundraising event on Stray FM all day on FRIDAY 8 September 2017.  We need your pledges earlier this year to help us plan the day as it will all be filmed.  So don’t forget for your 2 minutes of fame on Stray FM on 8 September, please complete and return your pledge forms as soon as possible.  We will not invoice you until September.

If you are keen to enter the Christmas Shop window competition or pledge your support to help pay for the Christmas lights, please contact John Fox at johnm.fox93@gmail.com
