Counites Energy is once again partnering with Glenbrook Vintage Railway to light up the community with festive cheer this Christmas. The award-winning Counties Energy Christmas Lights, Trains at Night experience includes the charitable organisation’s trains, station and buildings decorated in Christmas lights, a special Christmas Express train service, visits from Santa, a Christmas market, food stalls, a free Counties Energy Kids Zone and much more.
The event runs from 8-10 and 15-23 December in the lead up to Christmas, with a sensory night on 14 December. Money raised from ticket sales will go towards the ongoing maintenance and upkeep of the historic Glenbrook Vintage Railway, a non-profit organisation.
Counties Energy Chief Executive Judy Nicholl says the company is thrilled to partner with Glenbrook Vintage Railway to bring this annual event to their community.
“Mark your diaries now for the Counties Energy Christmas Lights, Trains at Night event with the festivities promising to be a fantastic time for the whole family. Seeing so many people enjoy the experience is wonderful, with delight on the faces of old and young alike. We’re looking forward to again lighting up Franklin with Christmas spirit and welcoming in the festivities for 2023.”
