It’s pumpkin to talk about! A spooktacular show will light up a family home this Halloween in aid of Derian House Children’s Hospice.
Bats, spiders, ghosts, and talking pumpkins made up of thousands of LED lights will dazzle crowds outside no.1 Hemley Close – home to the Spann family.
The shows will run twice daily (at 6pm and 7pm) for four nights from 28 October to 31 October and will feature video snippets and music from Halloween favourites – Stranger Things, Ghostbusters, and the Addams Family.
The man behind the show – Paul Spann – has been preparing since January this year – and is no stranger to turning his home into a tourist attraction.
Last year, Paul’s family took part in Derian House’s Deck the Halls that sees houses across the country decorate their homes to raise money for the charity. The festive light show raised more than £3,000 for Derian House and attracted visitors from across the region.
Paul said: “This is our first Halloween light show and we’re looking forward to it. We have a great show lined up with loads of new props, a new sound system, plus a few surprises to add into the mix. A lot of hard work has gone into this – I’ve been preparing for months!
“No matter what happens with the world the shows will go on. We have back-up power to ensure that the kids are entertained. It will be fantastic to see all the families’ faces as they watch the show. Plus, it’s worthwhile to raise money for a good cause.”
Kerry Pritchard, Community Fundraiser at Derian House, said: “An incredible amount of effort goes into Paul’s light shows – they’re literally dazzling to see!
“While care is free for families, it costs £5.7million to run services at Derian House each year. We couldn’t do what we do without our supporters, like Paul, who go above and beyond for our families.”
Deck the Halls 2022 will see homes, schools, workplaces and clubs turn on their lights for Derian House and create show-stopping displays to wow their neighbours.
