Thousands of people are expected to visit Burton Latimer’s normally-quiet Hollow Wood Road again this year, with all 28 houses in the close-knit community putting up Christmas displays for charity.
Residents will turn their lights on for the first time on Sunday, 1st December. The lights will then come on at about 4pm each day, turning off at about 10pm – and the display will continue until the new year.
The annual event started three years ago, and residents are going all out this year to outdo their previous festive illuminations with an estimated 100,000 lights on show. Last year’s displays raised a phenomenal £12,000 for Cransley Hospice, animal rescue charity Nanna, and two local children.
To minimize inconvenience to local residents, visitors are asked to park at nearby Bosworth’s Garden Centre, who are kindly providing their car park for free.
