The Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen-designed Christmas ‘wonderland’ may have been a turkey (it closed after one day) but there are plenty of fantastic festive attractions and events to enjoy this December
Beautiful lanterns made from paper and willow are produced by Brighton and Hove folk in preparation for the annual “burning of the clocks” celebration on 21 December, the shortest day of the year. A lantern procession through the city leads to Brighton beach, where the lamps are burnt along with a massive sculptural light, and fireworks are let off to live music. The event is run by community charity Same Sky and is intended as a festive celebration that transcends religion and tradition.
