Visiting Burning of the Clocks for the first time

Yesterday with my Japan travel buddy Juna I visited the Burning of the Clocks in Brighton. It far exceeded my expectations with thousands of people taking part and spectating.  The annual event celebrates winter solstice and ends with fireworks and literally burning clocks in a big bonfire on the beach.

I can’t believe I’ve never been before, I have now added it to my list of must-go-to events in East Sussex; Lewes Bonfire, Brighton Pride , Burning of the Clocks and Brighton Photo Biennial. The event was well organised and there was a great family-friendly atmosphere.
