Xmas lights in the Quarter

Christmas Lights and Bright Ideas Lantern Parade

Friday 22 November

5pm starts from Folkestone town centre

Join us for a parade from the town centre, through the Creative Quarter, switching on our Christmas lights as we wander through the town. Pick up a lantern or bring your own. Choirs will provide the soundtrack to our journey. The parade will conclude at Quarterhouse with mulled wine, soft drinks, mince pies and a free for all open mic event, part of this year’s Book Festival.

All Creative Quarter shops, studios and galleries will stay open until 7pm, with many taking part in a yuletide Christmas Windows Display Competition. Vote for your favourite window display and win amazing prizes!

For the opportunity to get some amazing and unique gifts this Christmas check out our talented artists who will also be opening their doors on Saturday 7 and Saturday 21 December, 11am – 6pm.

To take part in our open mic event, Folkestone Shines, and perform at Quarterhouse your favourite story, poem or song simply email us at info@creativefoundation.org.uk

Don’t be shy!

In partnership with Folkestone Town Centre Management.
