Winter Lights 2020 Event

It’s a difficult year with COVID, but it’s time to come together… and make a great event!

Let’s have fun, be entertained by local talent, showcase local businesses, parade, make noise, dance and cheer each other up. Get on board and get this party started!

For the lights this year Celf Your Health are working in partnership with Newtown Council.

Ideas include:

  • Learn samba rhythms and dance in your doorway! Get your pots and pans ready!
  • Make a beautiful lantern to light up your street
  • Listen out for the DJ booth touring the streets
  • Share memories from Newtown lights events past
  • Perform or watch a live streamed evening filled with local talent
  • See Santa, hear from the MayorAnd more!
