Newtown Lights Project 2020 cumulated on November 28th 2020 when local talent/ schools and individuals performed on Newtown TV!
The evening’s programme, showcased the best of Newtown’s talent and is now available on the council home page, https://newtown.org.uk where you can watch it again.
The programme included films from schools showing their lanterns, a speech from the Mayor, Father Christmas, the lights switch on and then a fantastic evening programme of local talent sharing stories, music, theatre and making.
There has been a wonderfully warm response across the community with individuals and organisations offering their voluntary skills and time to coordinate and facilitate many aspects of the project.
Newtown Twinning introduced a number of videos from our twin town at Christmas. The Newtown Twinning introduction video and the two links to the French Christmas in Les Herbiers are shown below:
