Each year the town council puts up and takes down the town’s colourful Christmas lights and organises the annual switch-on event. The town council also provides the Christmas tree in the Market Place. Sadly, the traditional market and music entertainment could not take place in 2020 due to Covid-19.
A Magical Mystery Virtual Christmas Film was released on Saturday 28th November 2020, coinciding with the lights being switched on across the town.
You can watch the film right here:
“The film features music, art, dance, drama, all surrounded by a scripted screenplay in a magical comedy drama,” a Christmas in Westbury Spokesperson said. “Think Spielberg meets David Walliams all wrapped up in a local magical mystery.”
Westbury Town Council have been determined to bring the town together in safe and creative ways, commissioning the film earlier this year to ensure residents could enjoy a Christmas Celebration at home.
More than 90 cast and crew have worked on the 35-minute film, which made Covid compliant production a huge but extremely rewarding challenge. We hope you like it!
Oh, and have you seen the Magic Button?
