Festive Walk Through Lights at Farmer Copleys
Nothing heralds the Christmas season quite like the warm glow of festive lights, and once again Farmer Copley’s hosted The Festive Lights in aide of The Prince of Wales Hospice. The event is a dazzling display of more than 40,000 festive lights.
The event is in memory of Jon Sharpe. Jon and his partner Jennifer Sharpe had illuminated their household and garden in North Featherstone near Pontefract for years, and drew hundreds of visitors from across Yorkshire each festive season. With the unfortunate passing of Jon last year, the event was moved to the grounds of Farmer Copley’s Farm at families request. The lights at Farmer Copleys allow continued support for Prince of Wales Hospice, a charity which Jon and Jennifer raised over £13k for over the years.
As we drove towards the farm the lights could clearly visible from the road-side and looked amazing. It certainly attracts attention and makes you feel ‘wow’. The delight you feel is certainly something Jon would have wanted!
An event well worth attending this holiday season.The pathway as you enter is clearly marked out with twinkling Christmas lights to guide you around the illuminations of which there are many! As we made our way around we noticed a tractor covered in lights, plus there were lights in the overhanging trees above! Towards the end there was ‘Jon’s House’ which was a miniature version of what his house looked like fully illuminated!
The ground is covered in straw to help keep you dry and clean, that said it might be a good idea to wear wellies, especially if it’s been raining
This event adds a magical start to the festive season. See dates and times for this event here.
There is a suggestion donation of £3 upon entry.
