Welcome to Light Up Axminster

Light Up Axminster was formed in January 2017 in response to an open meeting held in November 2016 to discuss the future of the town's Christmas lights. 


Since the first open meeting the group decided to focus not only on Christmas lights, but brightening the town up throughout the year through celebratory events that bring our whole community together. 


Please have a look through the website to find out more about our actvities and events, fundraisers and how you can help us make the town a better place to live, work and visit.

From animation and greenscreen to lantern making over 390 people have been to our workshops. A huge thank you to everyone that has taken part! There is still plenty of time to have your say on future Christmas's - pop into The Light House to have your say on our Christmas Wall!
