It’s all light on the night as Christmas comes to Jamestown

St Helena Festival of Lights 2015 - What The Saints Did Next
St Helena Festival of Lights 2015

The Festival of Lights in Jamestown gets brighter every year. A replica RMS St Helena rolled down Main Street and in the bay, the real ship was lit up for her final Christmas. A large aircraft and even an air traffic control tower rumbled down through town as well, along with cheerleaders from Pilling School and lots and lots of Santas (most of them female).

Darrin and Sharon Henry launched their What The Saints Did Next blog a year ago with pictures of the 2014 festival, and they’ve produced some great shots again in 2015 – including the one above. Find more here.

Festival of Lights Paul Tyson

Check Paul Tyson’s Two Years In The Atlantic blog to see whether he’s posted his own images there yet; if not, you can see a first selection on his Facebook page, here.

Paul’s verdict: “Another fantastic show for Christmas 2015. Well done to Pilling Primary School and to all the Saint community who are the best when it comes to making the spectacular out of nothing. What a wonderful night.”

Ed Thorpe also has some excellent pictures (see below) in the St Helena Independent and on Facebook, here.
