Picturesque riverside town as the backdrop for a traditional Christmas experience
Thousands are expected to flock to Candlelit Dartmouth, the pretty Christmas festival, on the evening of Friday, November 30 and throughout Saturday, December 1.
The event – now in its sixth year – uses the picturesque riverside town as the backdrop for a traditional Christmas experience.
Highlights include carol singing with the Royal Britannia Naval College, Father Christmas’s arrival by boat and a spectacular candlelit lantern procession.
New for this year is a series of creative workshops giving youngsters the chance to make their own presents and decorations.
The festival’s Christmas market will be its largest ever, filling Royal Avenue Gardens, The Quay, Flavel Place and the Old Market.
As well as entertainers, magicians, acrobats and musicians, the event programme includes an open-to-all children’s carol singing.
