Show off your Christmas lights displays

editorial image

This Christmas homes across Northumberland will be lit up with festive lights displays.

And we want them to feature on our website.

Like them or hate them Christmas lights displays are becoming increasingly popular.

Many do it to simply cheer up their street and make people smile in austere times.

Others are annual extravaganzas which raise money for charity.

Whatever your reason, we would like to see yours.

We’re asking our readers and users to submit a short video clip, around 15 seconds, of their own house lit up.

The Gazette team will then judge the best and the winner will be announced on our website on Friday December 20.

They must be video, no longer than 15 seconds, no photographs, please.


Try to keep the camera as still as possible, and if filmed using a phone, please film it landscape, not upright.

Don’t forget to include your contact email address and phone number, including the town or village you live in.

So, what are you waiting for? Take a video of your Christmas decorations today and email them to
