The Light Before Christmas illuminates Folkestone’s Creative Quarter

As the days get shorter and the evenings darker, the Light Before Christmas prepares to illuminate Folkestone’s Creative Quarter…

On Saturday the 20th December there will be an illuminated procession through the streets of Folkestone, down into the harbour market square for a lively arts market where illuminations, music and performances will entertain you on this festive evening. The artist made trees will gather into an assorted forest beneath an illuminated array of paper lanterns in and around the harbour market square. Visitors will also be invited to light up a large metal tree sculpture on the evening with small magnetic lights to raise money for charity. The event will then conclude with Fireworks at 8.15pm.
