The Luck Dragon — Hopes and wishes for the year ahead
The act of creating, parading, and then releasing into a bonfire has long historical traditions across the UK (with Lewes Bonfire Night as an example right on our doorstep!). It’s a process that resonates with communities to express, share and release ideas, hopes and wishes. Burning the Clocks is an antidote to the challenges and commercialisation of daily life, inviting people to find optimism in the lengthening days ahead. Every year local artist Graham Carter donates an uplifting bespoke illustration to Burning the Clocks.
