Burning The Clocks Brighton - Lewes Bonfire Night Celebrations
December 14, 2014 at 8:56 pm by v
The people of Brighton and Hove gather together to make paper and willow lanterns to carry through their city and burn on the beach as a token for the end of the year.
Every year on 21st December, the shortest day of the year, Same Sky – Brighton’s community art charity – produces a much-loved free event in Brighton called Burning the Clocks. The event combines a family lantern procession with a spectacular fire and fireworks show, bringing the whole city together to celebrate.
Burning the Clocks is a unique community event in which local people make their own paper and willow lanterns. After carrying them through the city in a lantern parade they pass them into the fire on Brighton beach, as a token of the year’s end. Then a dazzling fire show is set in motion, in which a massive fire sculpture is ignited, live music plays, and fireworks light up the sky!
Burning the Clocks was created in 1994 as a way to celebrate the festive season regardless of faith or creed. It is free and the route is suitable for all ages and abilities. Over 2,000 people now take part in the parade and over 20,000 spectators turn out to watch. 6.30pm, Sunday, 21st December, Madeira Drive, Brighton, BN2 1PS More Details Here
