A popular pre-Christmas event that takes place in Brighton near the Winter Solstice, the Burning of the Clocks is a free event that attracts over 20,000 people. Participants are invited to wear bright costumes and make paper lanterns to become part of the parade which heads through the town and congregates on the beach where there is a huge bonfire and fireworks display. The lanterns are thrown into the fire and the bearers make wishes for the coming year.
The parade will start from 6:30pm through the town centre which will end up on the beach by the Brighton Pier.
