NotEnoughLights Christmas Light Show, featuring over 250,000 LED lights
Lights on from 8:30PM, Come take a look up the drive!
Find us in Dunluce Place in Hornby, Christchurch City. You honestly can't miss it!
Don't forget to check out the others in the street!

Tune your car radio into 90.0FM when outside the show and listen to the music the lights dance to!
Some imported cars may not be true to their radio tuning, and you may have to search around for the music. E.g 90.0FM on your radio may actually be 80.0FM

You are more than welcome to come up the drive to look, but please keep off all gardens and lawns
We do request that younger children are accompanied by an adult, for their safety

    Frequently Asked Quetsions

    Questions we get asked many times a day about our light show

    Do we need to pay to enter?

    Nope, you can visit as many times as you want for no cost at all. We do have a donation box at the letterbox if you wish to leave a donation however, this is 100% optional.

    How long does it take to put up the lights?

    We began putting the lights up in September, mostly during weekends and after work

    How much does this cost to run?

    The light show uses very little power all up, about as much as 3 toasters running (About 3500 watts) and costs us somewhere between $30 and $50 to run. Our large solar panel system helps offset our power usage as we produce more than we use.

    Do you mow the lawn?

    Nope

    How many lights do you have?

    256,000+ lights, and this is a best guess!

    How long do the lights stay on for tonight?

    See the Show Times listed above

    How long have you done light displays and how much does it cost?

    About 15 years, the last 7 years of which were musically sequenced I would have to guess over $30,000 has gone into light shows, I try not to keep count.

    Where do I get my lights?

    I get most of my lights from Bunnings Warehouse, and import the more specialised ones seen on the Mega Tree.

    Can I take photos and videos?

    Yes, of course, you're welcome to take as many photos and videos as you want

    How do you control all these lights?

    I use a program called Vixen Lights to sequence the lights, and then lots of control boards that take the signal from the computer and turn it into on and off signals for the lights.
    The lights on the big tree (And other lights that do the same thing) are run from special controllers that can talk to the whole string at once.
