The Dartford Festival of Light takes place on Friday 18th October between 6pm and 7:30pm.
Now in its 10th year the celebrations showcase the excellent work being done by young people from across the Borough through the arts and promote the values of respect, excellence, friendship and equality.
We have been working with local school children to create stunning items which they will parade through the town centre.
The evening begins with the arrival of the children at One Bell Corner in the High Street at 6pm, where entertainment will be provided by street performers, then at 6:30pm the colourful lantern parade will commence and head via Hythe Street and Suffolk Road into the Orchards Shopping Centre, left out on to the High Street and then turn right at Holy Trinity Church and head back towards Central Park for 7pm. There’ll be more entertainment and speeches at the Central Park Band Stand from 7:05pm, followed by a short but spectacular fireworks display finale from 7:25pm to 7:30pm.
