After their show-stopping Candy Lane light display in 2020, local couple May and Rod Proctor are preparing to top last year’s display with a lifesize gingerbread house.
Each year, a Christmas-loving couple from Garforth spend around four weeks building and planning their fantastic Christmas displays.
This year, work will shortly begin to turn their Garforth estate into a magically Christmas light parade. A giant family-friendly gingerbread house has been planned by the couple that will be truly bring Christmas back to life for the 2021 season.
The life size house will have enough room for children to poke their heads out of the window and take pictures at the unique festive building.
There will also be an array of interesting features surrounding the property, including teapots, reindeer and flamingos. Each will be made from May and Rod’s workshop as they tirelessly create their masterpiece over the coming weeks.
The couple have also hinted that they have also built a Hobbit house and Olaf from Frozen will be making a special visit to the Garforth estate during their pop-up lights display.
The display will go ‘all out’ with this year’s festive decorations and the Proctor’s hope that it will bring joy to anyone passing their home.
Last year, the great-grandparents shared that the inspiration and drive for their designs were ‘the children that have already been through so much this year’.
As well as giant candy canes and lights leading round the streets, there was also a sweet shop for children to enjoy at the festive-themed Candy Lane display.
Thousands of people across Leeds visited the ‘most Christmassy house in the area’ and the gingerbread house display is expected to be just as popular.
