Happy Christmas Dover – the Town Lights Up!

Dover is celebrating Christmas in style this year with a 28ft high tree in the Market Square covered with 6000 lights in blue and brilliant white all topped with a special festive star. The tree is surrounded by over 60 large snowflake decorations in matching blue and white are spread throughout the Town Centre in Upper and Lower Biggin St and Cannon St. At the Town Council offices at Maison Dieu House there are 11 mistletoe stars beautifully lighting up the nearby tree. Modern Christmas decorations move with the times and we have projectors in the Market Square and outside Maison Dieu House making magical light patterns with dancing snowflakes. 

The lights come on as it gets dark each day at 3.30pm in the afternoon and are switched off at 10.30pm and you can enjoy them every day until 4th January. Local businesses and Dover High Street need your support especially now, but please act responsibly and in line with all the relevant covid-19 restrictions.
