House move won’t put Tim’s Lights in dark

Teenager Tim Hancock hasn’t let a move of house stop him from keeping the real meaning of Christmas alive through his annual lights display in aid of Marie Curie.

Despite a family house move from Lurgan to Tandragee, the 18-year-old university student is keeping the display going, in fact this year’s will be the biggest display yet.

The display features many types of lights to make up their full nativity, eight piece choir and carollers section and Santa’s Workshop scene. As if this isn’t enough there are quite a variety of snowmen and a new North Pole scene with even more lights than before and there is still more to look at during a visit to Tim’s Lights.

Each year, Tim and his father, Mark, add more lights to the display in order to share the real meaning of the Christmas season, the birth of Jesus while putting a smile on everyone’s faces and raising money for the well known charity, which is very close to their hearts. This year is no different as the Christmas lights duo seek to make an impression at their new family home.

Tim said, “We cannot emphasise enough that all our existing and new supporters alike are more than warmly invited to the come and visit the display at its new home”.

The display, which goes live on Facebook on Saturday, December 3, at 4.30pm, is now be located at 83 Armagh Road, Tandragee, BT62 2HS.

The switch on night will also see the launch of a festive competition which has been supported by a number of local businesses.

The lights display will run daily from 4.30pm to 10pm.

All donations made through the on-site donations box or justgiving web donations platform will go to the charity.

The Facebook page can be found at or by searching @TimsLightsNI in the search bar, where all the up to date information regarding the display can be found.

Tim also wished to thank the businesses who have once again come onboard to support the growing display.
