Walk December 21, 2018, Friday 5pm-8pm. December Solstice - Burning the Clocks LANTERN PARADE.
Quote: "Burning the Clocks is a unique festival of light and art that brings the city of Brighton together to mark the Winter Solstice. The festival was created in 1994 by the award-winning community arts charity Same Sky as a way to celebrate the holiday spirit regardless of people's religious beliefs. Recently it has adopted a totally different purpose as a rebellion against the modern day excess of Christmastime commercialism.
Make a lantern: What better way to get involved then to create your own lantern and participate in the event. It is very important to note that only approved lanterns will be allowed on the beach for safety reasons. You will need to purchase an official lantern kit in advance.
Walk in the parade: The parade is half the fun of the event and free for anyone to participate. The only requirement to participate in the parade is that you purchase an official lantern kit. The kit contains a parade wristband.
Wear something warm: The nights can get quite cold in Brighton over winter. The ocean breeze can drop temperatures quickly so make sure to wear a scarf and keep your head covered.
Participants of the parade meet at the Corn Exchange (one of the venues of the Brighton Dome) at 5pm. From here the lanterns are checked by officials to make sure the parade runs safely and smoothly. With lanterns lit the spectacle begins at around 6:30pm, as the crowd of around 2,000 people representing all ages make their way down New Road.
The streets are lined with eager spectators who cheer as the parade of light winds its way through the streets and down to the shorefront. In total some 20,000 spectators brave the cold to witness this motley procession of white shapes illuminating the darkness of the longest night for the year. At approximately 7:15pm the last group of the parade arrives at the beach to the beating of drums and the fire show springs to action."

Start: The Corn Exchange, near the Brighton Dome, Church St east of New Rd and Jubilee St. Route: Along Madeira Drive and surrounding streets|Prince Albert St & Ship St Brighton.

History Discussion/Interactive Walk/Hike November 5, 2019, ?day. Lewes Bonfire.
Quote: "A set of celebrations held in the town of Lewes, Sussex that constitute the United Kingdom's largest and most famous Bonfire Night festivities, with Lewes being called the bonfire capital of the world...
 Always held on 5 November (unless the 5th falls on a Sunday, in which case it's held on Saturday 4th), the event not only marks Guy Fawkes Night - the date of the uncovering of the Gunpowder Plot in 1605 - but also commemorates the memory of the seventeen Protestant martyrs from the town burned at the stake for their faith during the Marian Persecutions.
 Lewes is home to the largest and most celebrated of the festivities in the Sussex bonfire tradition. There are seven societies putting on five separate parades and firework displays on the 5th, and this can mean 3,000 people taking part in the celebrations, and up to 80,000 spectators attending in the small market town with a permanent population of just under 16,000"
