UK’s ‘craziest Christmas lights’ to return for 2022 despite energy cost hike

Britain's "craziest Christmas lights" are set to return yet again this year despite the drive in energy prices and cost of living expenses.

Bromsgrove-based Malcolm and Wendy Molloy have vowed to continue their festive spirit, which lights up their home and "brings joy" to people across the region.

Despite soaring electric bills across the United Kingdom, the pair are set to continue their popular Christmas installation, which marked the Worcestershire home as a famous Christmas attraction, BirminghamLive reported.

Even then, the display will have to make one change to the constant illuminations, with the couple admitting the cost of living has driven them to make one key alteration.

That key change will see the lights timed for some slightly shorter hours, with the Christmas lights finishing earlier than they usually would.

An average energy bill of £750 over the festive season was reduced by the couple to £450 with the use of LED lights, but that figure will rise yet again due to the cost of living crisis and energy bills increase.

Lighting up the home to raise money for charity, the donations given toward the light show will be sent to the local Primrose Hospice.

Malcolm and Wendy are set to start their Christmas lights show on Friday, December 9 during a special event after the Sun goes down.

Malcolm said: "I know the electricity prices have gone up since last year but we wanted to do carry on with the Christmas lights to cheer everyone up.

"You've got to bring joy amidst all this gloom at the moment and people love coming to see the lights.

"The only difference will be that I'll set timers for slightly less hours this year but there will still be plenty of time for everyone to enjoy them."

The couple have been lighting up their home for the past two decades and have added more to their display as the years go on, raising thousands of pounds for charity over that time.
