Burning the Clocks is a unique event where local people make their own paper clocks and willow lanterns, take part in a procession through the city, before burning them in a huge bonfire on the beach. Music and fireworks also mark the year’s end.
Brighton has been running this event for over 20 years. I managed to film the event the first year we moved down here. The children took their clocks right up to the clock in those days.
This film is about six years old. Burning the clocks is considered by some to be a celebration of the winter’s solstice.
