Christmas In Lyndhurst2021-12-13T21:42:50+00:00


Since 1079 Lyndhurst has been known as the ‘capital’ of the New Forest and has been the haunt of royalty, nobility and commoner alike for centuries. As the largest village in the area rich in history and heritage this beautiful village has become much loved by locals and visitors alike.

It was this same affection for the village that led a group of local tradesmen to hang Christmas lights across the high street over 40 years ago to spread some festive cheer. Powered for a time by a local upstairs flat and managed by volunteers these lights for many years have helped to ‘make it Christmas in Lyndhurst,’ the heart of the New Forest.

We are The Lyndhurst Village Decorations Committee, a collection of local volunteers passionate about our village. We help manage and coordinate the christmas decorations each year, as well as donations, collections, insurances, licencing and anything else required. We aren’t a charity, our whole operation is provided and funded by volunteers and locals so we need your help!


Can you make a one-off or small monthly donation? Perhaps you can fund-raise with a raffle, cake sale or coffee morning – Every little helps. Please contact us below.


We need people to help set up lighting and decorations throughout the high street, to pack down afterwards and make refreshments for our workforce. If you can help please contact us below.


Help us spread the word in the Village. You can also follow us on social media and share our posts with others.

Thank you for organising – it will be lovely to see the lights back


Berties would love to see the festive atmosphere back to the village and want to contribute to help make this happen.


We love the colourful strings, definitely makes Lyndhurst magical.


Love the Christmas string lights, would be great to bring them back!


Would be fantastic to see the Christmas string lights again, more traditional for our lovely village
