Burning The Clocks
We are very excited to have been asked to be included in the Burning The Clocks lantern trail this December.
Because of Covid restrictions, Burning The Clocks is going to be a bit different this year. Instead of the parade which is normally held on winter solstice, this year there will be a month long event where 12 independent shops will have a lantern installation across the town centre.
If you are a local to Brighton, you will know that the annual Burning The Clocks is an institutional feast for the eyes in December. A parade of handmade paper lanterns twists and turns through the town and ends at the beach with the ceremonial clock burning. This Pagan festival is to celebrate winter solstice, but it was also born from bringing people together during a festive period, no matter of faith.
Burning the Clocks 2020 will be a lantern trail in 12 shop windows from 2-21 December. The trail showcases independent shops that celebrate creativity, local artists, or community. Each bespoke lantern will be made by a different artists, representing an element of the parade.
There will also be a live-stream of a celebratory burning with fireworks at 8pm on 21 December from a secret location.You can find the full list of shops featuring here.
