Burning the Clocks has become a much loved tradition, bringing people together to celebrate the winter solstice and mark the passing of time

by sameskybtn in Brighton, , United Kingdom

Burning the Clocks needs your help once again! 

Every year on 21st December, the winter solstice, we produce this much-loved event in Brighton. Burning the Clocks combines a beautiful lantern procession through the streets of Brighton, with a spectacular fire and fireworks show, bringing the whole city together to celebrate and reflect on the past year.

Burning the Clocks was created in 1993 as an antidote to the excesses of the commercial Christmas and as a way to celebrate the festive season regardless of faith, embracing our entire community. It brings people together from all ages and walks of life to celebrate our fantastically unique city and to share the things that bind us all.

Around 20,000 people now come to watch Burning the Clocks and around 2,000 people join us to take part in the lantern parade each year. Purchasing one of our packages not only allows you to be at the heart of this unforgettable event but also helps to make sure Burning the Clocks can return next year!

We receive no guaranteed funding and this crowdfunder is a vital part of keeping Burning the Clocks alive.
