Candlelit Dartmouth – A Festive Weekend

The riverside town of Dartmouth will once again be hosting its candlelit Christmas festival, a weekend event not to be missed!

Celebrating its tenth year, this ever-popular gathering is packed with entertainment, tradition, and excitement. The narrow Elizabethan streets will be magically lit up during the town’s lantern procession, while the market stalls will be crammed with Christmas gifts and treats, and a tempting selection of festive foods and drinks. Musicians and entertainers will be wowing the crowds and adding to the spectacle.

Events begin this Friday 25th November and continue on Saturday 26th November. What better way to discover this wonderful town, than to join in with the celebrations! For more information visit the Candlelit Dartmouth website.
