The Holt Christmas Lights is an event that really ushers in Christmas with a difference. Entertainment kicks off from 5.30pm on Friday 19th November 2021 and is quickly followed by the now legendary ‘Panto Race’. Now into its fifth year, this entertaining and hard fought contest takes place down the Holt high-street ahead of the official switch on. Watch on as fifteen+ horses bolt it down the high street for the chance to grab the esteemed @Sowerbys Cup. Competing ‘panto’ horses are a three-piece composition made up of two-part horse, one-part handler all sponsored by Holt traders.
At 7pm the lights are switched on with a fantastic firework display. A live band that takes centre stage through to the last encore at 9pm.
