About Woolworths lights

Woolworths were a major presence on British high streets from the late 1900s up until 2009. With stores in most sizeable towns, their Christmas light sets found their way into millions of homes nationwide.

These pages concentrate on lights produced in the 1980s and 1990s. During this era, the range was very consistent with some sets in production for many years.
