Dover's Winter Light Up

Dover Town Council, Dover District Council and Destination Dover are delighted to announce Dover’s Winter Light Up - an all-day celebration of festive fun in Dover town centre on Saturday 4th December.

The event will combine a Christmas Market with live entertainment, exciting Christmassy activities and an interactive evening of festive illumination, with a lantern procession parading through the town centre to accompany the seasonal splendour of Dover’s Christmas lights.

Dover’s Heritage Quarter (Ladywell Car Park behind Maison Dieu) will be transformed into a winter’s wonderland with Christmas crazy golf, escape rooms, live performances and Ceramic Art Dover’s raku firing and interactive workshops amongst some of the attractions that are set to delight visitors, who will also be able to enjoy shopping from the craft stalls and sampling the food and drink of the Christmas Market.

The Christmas Market and entertainment get underway from midday with the lantern parade due to start at 4pm in Pencester Gardens, and together with Dover’s Christmas lights, will illuminate the town centre as dusk falls. Featuring exciting giant lantern characters, the parade will be delivered by Dover’s Future Foundry.

Visitors to Dover on Saturday 4th December will also be able to take advantage of free parking in Dover District Council's car parks across White Cliffs Country.
