LIGHTS! CANDLES! CHRISTMAS ACTION! WHO SAID THERE ARE ONLY 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS?


e reckon the festive spirit actually lights up when


Candlelit Dartmouth’s Festive Weekend arrives in town on December 6th


& 7th , with its unique


mix of Christmas markets, candlelit processions santa’s spectacular Boat Float ‘splashdown’ and bags of seasonal cheer. This year, the fun starts at 4pm on Friday December 6th


, when the


Christmas Market comes to life in Royal Avenue Gardens with mulled wine, music, entertainers and a host of local stalls full of Christmas gifts and festive eats, plus late night shopping in the great mix of shops and galleries that Dartmouth has to offer. There are also carols with the choir and musicians from the BRNC RN Volunteer Band around the Christmas Tree, before the official switch-on of the town’s Christmas Lights - not to mention the highlight of santa’s water-borne arrival at 6pm. And after you’ve finished late night shopping, why not enjoy a candlelit dinner at one of Dartmouth’s many fine restaurants and bistros? The Festive Weekend continues with


on saturday December 7th


more market stalls, music and entertainment all day from 10am until 7pm. Dartmouth Academy will operate a free Park and Ride service from the top of town and also hold their own Christmas Fayre in the town’s Old Market, while The Flavel is where you’ll find santa in his Grotto, along with seasonal workshops for adults and children alike. Meanwhile, back at The Bandstand,


there’s a snow Queen & Jack Frost fancy dress competition at 11am, while the ever-popular ‘Best Dressed Christmas Dog’ competition returns at 2pm along with an appearance by festive donkeys, before the weekend finale of the traditional lantern


procession sets off from the Old Market at 5.30pm. Hundreds of willow and tissue lanterns, made by local school children and adults in specially organised workshops, create an amazing spectacle as they parade through our historic streets, bringing a truly magical light to a truly magical town. And if your camera’s handy, it’s also a great chance to capture the true ‘spirit of Candlelit Dartmouth’, the theme of our new Photo Competition. But that’s not all, because
