Vodafone creates a new twist on traditional Christmas lights to help keep the UK connecting this December.
- Vodafone is calling on children across the UK to create their own special Christmas card designs to be turned into a super-sized 23 x 16 metre ‘Light Up’ display for all to see.
- Creating the brightest Christmas card in Britain, the display will recreate each child’s design in lights, with an image sent back to them as a digital e-card to be shared with friends, family and loved ones.
- The light display, made from 1600 LED bulbs and powered by 5G, will be live streamed every night between 5pm and 9pm so families across the UK can see their child’s design up in lights.
- For every card submitted via #ConnectTheMagic, Vodafone will donate £1 to Barnardo’s, raising vital funds for the charity*.
- To provide inspiration to young artists, Vodafone is offering a special online festive art class with renowned children’s illustrator, Rob Biddulph.
3 December 2020: With many traditional Christmas lights, fayres and markets cancelled this year, Vodafone has created a new twist on a Christmas classic – a 5G-powered light display, bringing to life Christmas drawings from children across the UK. Vodafone will donate £1 to charity Barnardo’s* for every card designed.
It’s easy to get involved, just create your festive design, take a picture on your phone and share on social media using #ConnectTheMagic. The images will then be sent back via the same social media platform you used to submit your illustration, via the comment or original tweet.
The huge 23 x 16 metre light display, which is made from 1600 bulbs and taller than the famous letters of the Hollywood sign in Los Angeles, has been installed on the side of Cabot Circus shopping centre in Bristol.
