Control the Show is a unique Christmas display which allows anyone in the world with a computer connection to log on and control the lights. We are currently live each night from 5pm until midnight until New Year’s Day. … Control the Show uses a queuing system to maintain order on the light switches. This means you must line up to control the show. Each person is limited to one minute of control time. During your control time you will be in total control of the system and ONLY YOU will be switching the lights on or off.
