The Wincanton Town Team promises an extraordinarily modern High Street light display to celebrate the 2015 festive season – and you’re all invited.

The Somerset market town of Wincanton is preparing to be illuminated in a way fitting for this unique and vibrant town. A thoroughly modern display of oversized snowflakes, mirrored reflections and laser light configurations which have been designed, created and installed by local light sculptor Zac Greening, will light the town on Friday 4th December 2015 to coincide with the town’s Christmas Extravaganza.

This year’s display is certain to be a highlight of the town’s festive activities, adding a touch of modern art to the usual traditional displays.

Wincanton Christmas lighting sample for 2015, by Zac GreeningThis year the Wincanton Town lights will be extraordinary and unique, which we feel mirrors the qualities of Wincanton itself. I have configured a variety of lighting schemes up and down the High Street that are a complete departure from the usual Christmas lights we typically see on Britain’s high streets.

- Zac Greening, Technical & Artistic Director

The lighting display has been made possible thanks to contributions from The Mayor’s Fund, Wincanton Town Team, Wincanton Chamber of Commerce and local business traders.

We have received incredible support from local business who recognise that this light display will be a fabulous addition to the town’s Christmas activities. We are very fortunate to have the support and skills of Zac Greening who has spear-headed the project.

- Katie Petre-Mears, Wincanton Town Team Co-ordinator

The Wincanton Town Team is a voluntary initiative formed in 2011 to improve the town of Wincanton for residents, business and visitors, with a focus on the preservation and enhancement of the High Street.
