2003 was not only memorable for being one of the longest, hottest summers on record but it’s the year that Lights4fun all began. From the family kitchen table in Harrogate, the initial ideas were being created, and juggling work with children and animals became the norm!

Tim Naughton, our founder, was disillusioned with the quality of ‘outdoor Christmas
lights’ sold in the UK. Three successive sets bought from a local garden centre all failed
almost instantly. He looked to source a better product, which after many months of research
Tim eventually found in Germany. Sixteen years later we still sell that same item, updated
and robustly manufactured in rubber cabling to beat the worst of European winters. This
outdoor connectable String Light is now one of our best sellers and has hundreds
of satisfied customer recommendations.

So back in those early days our idea was to set up a business, having found a gap in the
market, and what we lacked in experience was always made up for by unlimited enthusiasm
and a desire to provide outstanding customer service. We’ve grown a lot since then, but our
quest to provide great products & incomparable customer service remains the force behind everything we do.

Today we offer more than 700 different decorative lights, each one serving a purpose.

Today we are still a family business, yet we have moved premises twice and our team has grown to nearly 40 wonderful people in our Harrogate office. Our vision is still the same with dogs, cakes and coffee being a welcome daily distraction.
