Bradford Council's Festival Lights can produce almost anything and have recently produced a commemoration poppy and a soldier's silhouette to bring home to the public the great sacrifices that are made by our armed forces. They hope it will inspire the
community to mark the centenary of the First World War during their commemoration ceremonies but particularly for the public to reflect and remember those soldiers who lost their lives, not just in the past but continue to do so as a result of more recent
The poppy which is 1.6m by 1.6m in size is proving very popular with many councils already having placed an order for it.
The stand-up silhouette soldier is 1.8m x 0.8m in size and is now also starting to attract attention.
Both can be placed on buildings, street lighting columns, cross streets or in the ground and all features can be made in low voltage or mains voltage. These are not the only designs that Festival Lights can produce. They make bespoke displays, for Christmas
or any other celebration, so if you would like something created from a design produced by the children then that could be a possibility. get in touch and find out....there's almost nothing they can't produce!
The Festival Lights department is a social enterprise that employs and supports people with disabilities and is going from strength to strength. Council's across the country purchase their celebration lights from Bradford.
If you would like more detail or want something designing specifically for your school then don't hesitate to contact Katy Green (Festival Lights Manager)
The Council will make a donation to the British Legion for every Poppy and Soldier Silhouette sold.
