The Prodigy’s music has been set to Christmas lights by a man in Essex for charity

The resident will showcase his light display for three hours each night

An Essex man has synchronised his Christmas lights to music by the The Prodigy.

Rik Burt, a resident in Braintree, the Essex town where The Prodigy members are originally from, has adorned his house with more than 3,000 Christmas lights in tribute to the band's late frontman, Keith Flint.

Throughout December, Burt's house is lit up with over 3,000 lights. Showcasing two different musical displays 30 minutes apart, for three hours each night, money raised from the light shows on the street is donated to respective charities.

Speaking to EssexLive, Burt said: "I have been doing the musical shows for four or five years and it's grown each year and we get better at it. It's something I have had to learn as we have gone on. The whole road takes part in the decorations, there were 50 houses last year and we are pushing that this year, and they have their different charities.

"I'm into my metal mainly, but The Prodigy bridged the divide between the genres really well," he added. "I saw them live but it was very surreal when we heard he was gone. We are hoping that one of the members of the band might see."

At Glastonbury this year, The Chemical Brothers dedicated their Saturday night set to Keith Flint. Versace also paid tribute to The Prodigy's Keith Flint at 2019 Milan Fashion Week.
