All our shows are free to attend and no booking is required
We're truly grateful to Southport Funeral Care who generously sponsored our two Halloween Lightshows on Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st October. The crowds we had were unbelievable, I've never seen so many people blocking Sidney Road before!
Whilst we are still waiting for the donations total from Freshfields Animal Rescue I think it's safe to say it will have surpassed every figure we'd hoped for, as soon as the total comes in I'll add it to the page.
This year we were delighted to be joined by Southport Costume Crew who are a bunch of ordinary people coming together to bring a bit of sparkle into daily life and to make magic happen. They really worked hard rehearsing their routine and danced with such enthusiasm and precision, even staying in character whilst off stage. All of their witches' costumes were home-made and a real credit to them, I'm certain they added tremendously to our total. Thank-you ladies.
Ed Mawdsley, of Southport Funeral Care said ‘We’ve known Steve for some time and admire his family in their fundraising for Freshfields through the lights, we are proud to have sponsored the Sidney Road Lights Halloween Show. In our business commitment to families is second to none along with the personal attention from two experienced Funeral Directors, we certainly added ‘that something extra’ to the Halloween light shows!’
Ed and Len have traditional family values at heart both in their business and private lives but they also look forward to scaring the pants off you at the light shows.
Len Coleman of Southport Funeral Care was excited with the sponsorship ‘The lights bring out a great community spirit which we embrace in our business model, we both aim to see that family traditions are upheld and celebrated. Whilst it might seem unusual for us to sponsor Sidney Road Lights we are uniquely placed to bring some spooky additions to the show’
If you're passing down Shakespeare Street in Southport please drop in and say hello to Ed and Len, I did leave them a packet of biscuits but I bet they're long gone now!
Below are some photos from the 2021 Halloween Show, we handed out 400 hot dogs, 4kg of Galaxy hot chocolate and around 22kg of sweets in 4 hours total!
