James said: "Since 2013 onwards we have done a Christmas light event every year, except in 2022 and throughout the Covid pandemic.

"The event gets a lot of appreciation from the public, which encourages me to put on a spectacle for those attending, particularly in the expensive times we find ourselves living in."

Guests attending the event can park at St Thomas Church, Charlton, SP10 4AN.
