MARKET contractor LSD Promotions has joined Stratford Town Trust and Danter Attractions as a sponsor of Stratford Christmas Lights.
The lights have been organised by an independent committee of volunteers since 1983 while the display is funded by grants, sponsorship and donations from local businesses and individuals.
LSD promotions will contribute over £3,000 a year towards the lights for the next three years with the committee providing them with their own Christmas tree at the bottom of Bridge Street.
LSD director Dermot McGillicuddy said: “We work across the country on Christmas events and markets, and I can safely say, without doubt, that Stratford-upon-Avon’s Christmas Lights are the best.
“The town is so lucky to have such a hardworking team of volunteers looking after the lights and we are delighted to be on board to ensure they keep illuminating the town for many years to come.”
Committee chair Matthew Coombes commented: “The award for best large speciality market that LSD Promotions have just won for the Victorian Christmas festival is not just a measure of that event but of how loved the Christmas lights are to residents and visitors alike.
“LSD’s generous support, alongside our other Presenting sponsors will enable us to continue organising a fantastic festive display for Stratford and allow us to replace and refurbish equipment.”
