Gainsborough: Send us your Christmas lights clips

editorial image

Will you be decorating the outside of your home with illuminations this Christmas?

The Standard is compiling a festive film montage of all the houses in and around Gainsborough that are decked out for Christmas.

And with most people’s phones now able to capture video, it couldn’t be simpler to get involved.

We are looking for 15 second video clips of Christmas light displays to post onto to our website for all the Standard readers to enjoy.

From the small and understated to the colourful and over the top, we want to see all of the decorated houses in our area.

To get involved and have your clip featured on the Gainsborough Standard website is easy.

All you need to do is send us a video clip of your lights display, which should be no more than 15 seconds long.

The footage must be a video and remember to keep the video camera or phone as still as possible while shooting your footage.

We want to see the front of the house in all its glory, without shakes and blurs. And don’t forget to include your contact details.

Once you have created your clip, email it to with the subject heading Christmas lights video and we will do the rest.

And keep an eye out on the Standard website at to see your video.
