Burning the Clocks is a much-loved annual parade in Brighton that occurs on 21st December, the Winter Solstice and shortest day of the year. The event is produced by Same Sky, Brighton’s community art charity. The event combines a magical family willow lantern procession with a spectacular fire and fireworks show by the beach.

Burning the Clocks 

 

Burning the Clocks is a unique community event created by Same Sky that brings the whole city together to mark the shortest day.

Local people make their own paper and willow lanterns and after processing through the city, they pass them into a blazing bonfire on Brighton beach, as a token of the year’s end.
