We have been asked by the Town Council to organise this year's Christmas Illuminations and make them the biggest and best Tadcaster has ever known!

Town Centre Delivery stage

pledged of £21,542

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

We really want to start celebrating Christmas in style, here in Tadcaster. Finally put Tad on the map for it's amazing christmas illuminations. Make our illuminations something to shout about! AS YOU CAN SEE WE DESPERATELY NEED HELP TO SAVE SAVE SANTA THIS CHRISTMAS!!

What we'll deliver:

  • purchase and organise Tadcaster's Christmas illuminations.
  • LIGHT UP THE TOWN OF TADCASTER with christmas illuminations!

Why it's a great idea:

It is a fantastic idea as it will make christmas in Tadcaster something really special, not only for the people who live here but also for the people who visit Tadcaster. Up until now the decorations here have not been something to brag about (as you can see by the picture) so we have been asked by the Town Council to take over the organising of the illuminations - and we are determined to do something truly spectacular. We want people who live here and the people who visit to get that great christmassy feeling. We really want to capture the spirit of christmas. We want to create a christmas that people will look forward to year in, year out! We are going to completely transform Tadcaster into a wonderful, winter wonderland. LETS MAKE TADCASTER AND FATHER CHRISTMAS PROUD!! (As you can see by the pictures, TADCASTER DESPERATELY NEEDS HELP IN SAVING SANTA!!)

Steps to get it done:

  • We will consult with the people and businesses of Tadcaster and discover what they would like to see displayed
  • We will supervise the displaying of the illuminations and make sure that they are showcased in the best possible way!
  • We will organise and decide how they will be arranged.
  • We will purchase and install all of the illuminations, LED lights and wrap the Christmas trees, etc

We really need to work together with the people of Tadcaster so that Christmas here can be even better. In order to achieve our goal we need to raise funds. So any contributions will be greatly appreciated. Tadcaster is a lovely, quiet, old brewery town with amazing heritage and very friendly, down to earth people (situated between York and Leeds).Unfortunately, like many towns across England, we are short of money. However, from 2014 and onwards, we are determined to make the Christmas Illuminations of Tadcaster somthing to talk about and make Christmas here an event to remember, a fantastic occasion that all the family will enjoy! We want to get everyone here in Tadcaster in the mood for Christmas! Make christmas here in Tadcaster better than ever!
