n amazing and truly wonderful event - the parade and lanterns are magical! The crowds by the fireworks at the end at Madeira are getting a bit unruly and street sellers of other tacky items are a concern

I love this! It is one of the things I most look forward to in December. To me Burning of the Clocks sums up Brighton. Exciting and forward looking. XX

I bought a 2016 print for my niece who lives in Australia but was with us at the 2016 Burning The Clock. Such a wonderful event and a really fantastic memory, soon to be on her wall in Sydney, bringing us all closer :) The prints are so beautifully made, great paper, fantastic quality can't recommend them highly enough.

Burning the clocks is a real asset to brighton. I love the whole experience of making the lanterns with my family, the parade and watching people watching it. And the burning bonfire too of course! It's a wonderful way to bring all faiths and beliefs together. I love it. Thank you! X
