Britain’s Craziest Christmas Lights looks at four families around the UK as they transform their homes into a festival of glittering Christmas lights.

The Channel 5 documentary is narrated by Slade’s Noddy Holder, famous for the classic Christmas song “Merry Xmas Everybody”, and contains laughs, cries and smiles as the Christmas-obsessed characters plan to create the biggest display of festive lights in the UK. We follow the progress of the families as they plan their decorations months in advance all the way to the big night of turning them on.

The production visited a family in the Sandwich area to see their extensive winter wonderland display.

Sandwich is a medieval town situated on the River Stour and boasts golf clubs, eateries and B&B’s as well a museum, windmill and Roman Fort. Sandwich has been seen on screen for projects such as Son of Rambow (2008) as well as nearby Discovery Park being used for The Tunnel (2013) and World War Z (2013).

Don’t miss Britain’s Craziest Christmas Lights which will be shown on Channel 5 on Wednesday 18th December 2013 at 21:00.
