Dover counts down to Christmas with Dover’s Winter Light Up and Big Locals Big Noel

Dover Town Council, Dover District Council at Destinasyon Dover ay nalulugod na ipahayag ang Dover's Winter Light Up – isang buong araw na pagdiriwang ng maligaya na kasiyahan sa sentro ng bayan ng Dover noong Sabado 4th Disyembre.

Ang kaganapan ay pagsasamahin ang isang Christmas Market na may 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 will be transformed into a winter’s wonderland with Christmas crazy golf, escape rooms, mga live na pagtatanghal at raku firing ng Ceramic Art Dover at mga interactive na workshop sa ilan sa mga atraksyon na nakatakdang pasayahin ang mga bisita, na masisiyahan din sa pamimili mula sa mga craft stalls at sampling ng pagkain at inumin sa Christmas Market.

Nagaganap sa Ladywell Car Park sa likod ng Maison Dieu sa Dover, ang Christmas Market at magsisimula ang entertainment mula tanghali. Ang lantern parade ay dapat magsimula sa 4pm at, kasama ang mga Christmas lights ni Dover, magliliwanag sa sentro ng bayan sa pagsapit ng takipsilim. Featuring exciting giant lantern characters, the parade will be delivered by Dover’s Future Foundry, who staged the hugely successful Walk With Amal event in Dover, “Light Leads The Way”, in October 2021. Children from Dover’s primary schools are invited to a free lantern-making workshop on Sunday 28th November at Biggin Hall, ahead of the procession the following week.

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 the district for Small Business Saturday, as the Council continues to work to support local businesses.

Councillor Gordon Cowan, Mayor ng Dover, sinabi: “It’s wonderful to put on this event in Dover and work in partnership, bringing the community together to enjoy this special time of year after such a challenging period.”

Cllr Trevor Bartlett, Leader, Dover District Council, sinabi: “It’s fantastic to support this all-day celebration and to feel excited for a whole season of Christmassy events across White Cliffs Country this year. Following the pandemic, this is a great opportunity for our communities to enjoy festive activities and events that were sadly missed last Christmas, and to support our amazing local businesses at an important time in the business calendar.

“We are delighted to work with Dover Town Council and Destination Dover to offer this wonderful free event for the community and, with free parking also being offered in Council car parks on that day, everyone can look forward to an enjoyable and successful day.”
