Changing of the Clocks

Each year on the winter solstice, the people of Brighton celebrate the ‘Burning of the Clocks’. After a procession through the town, residents and visitors throw their handmade paper clocks into a giant bonfire. It makes for quite a spectacle. The festival marks the shortest day of the year and celebrates the turning of the year. From here on, the days grow longer.

Until we reach March and the “Changing of the Clocks”. Perhaps we should burn the clocks in March so summer time lasts forever!

To celebrate the Changing of the Clocks, we have found some of our favourite wall clocks. Simply click on an image to launch the gallery and scroll through.
