Summer is almost here, and if you are anything like us you’ll have been swooning over images of sunny garden retreats, sun-soaked beer gardens and alfresco dining locations on your social media feeds. But what does that have to do with Christmas we hear you ask? Well, nothing really, but a common theme amongst these things are lights – Festoon Lights to be exact and we just happen to be experts in that area.

So, if you have been inspired to get your very own Festoon Lights, but weren’t sure where to start, we’ve created the ultimate buying guide so you know exactly which Festoon lights are best suited for you. From indoor to outdoor and the summer season right through to Christmas, this guide will show you just how versatile our Festoon lights can be.

Low Voltage

Our Low Voltage (12v) festoon lights are a great quality, cost-effective lighting option for home & garden installations. These festoons offer hugely flexible, on-trend solution for those spaces that require a low voltage option.

The classic globe bulb effect is the perfect mix between vintage and modern, and is ideal for lighting up big and small spaces alike. Hang them along fences, drape them in your bedroom, or add some multi-coloured ones to a children’s bedroom.

Mains Voltage

Mains Voltage (230v) festoon lights are a top-quality option, ideal for a big garden project or commercial use. These are our most popular Festoons, with the choice of globe or filament style bulb, they are stylish and timeless and create a stunning lighting effect in any setting. Use them to make a light canopy, or swag with Shepherds Hooks to illuminate a walkway.

With an IP65 rated, double insulated rubber cable these outdoor lights are highly weather resistant making them the perfect lighting solution for large outdoor events and commercial displays such as shop fronts, pubs, festivals and much more.
