Celebration of Illumination, The Great Doorstep Switch On

With all the usual Christmas events on hold this year we have been busy working with Redcar & Cleveland Council to create an alternative Christmas Light Switch On event for 2020 so why not join us!

This year Redcar’s Christmas Light Switch On is heading back to the streets, from Redcar to Brotton, Marske to Guisborough, Saltburn to Loftus, wherever you live in the Borough we need your help to keep Redcar shining bright! Join us on the 3rd December for the very first Great Doorstep Switch On, no matter how far apart we are we can still countdown together! 

Never before has the role of the simple lightbulb been so important, we need you to come together and generate enough power to make the Borough shine! You see there is something you don’t know about the Christmas lights, their secret guardians and how the power is created … 

Ray & Flash need your help, they are our festive friends who work year-round to make sure enough power is collected to switch on our festive illuminations. Normally their work is top secret but this year they need your help to save Redcar’s lights, you will know them when you see them so look out for the giant glittering bulb and listen for the music! Ray & Flash, created by Pif-Paf Theatre, will be coming past houses, visiting some of the streets in the Borough and collecting enough bulb power to make our magical Christmas lights glow! 

How can you get involved? Well just follow our Doorstep Switch On Guide of course! Get festive, make a lantern, decorate your street, countdown to the switch on and above all else remember Ray & Flash are relying on your help to gather the light and gather the love to get the Christmas lights on this year!
