We were utterly overwhelmed with the turn out last night!! The Dover community came out in their hundreds and it was absolutely MAGICAL!

A day of activity at Ladywell included incredible @ceramicartdover Raku Firing demonstrations and a music programme created by @doverpride and @frazerdoyleceramics that was just fabulous. The finale line up was hosted by @miss_lilli_berlin and included debut performances by Dover’s first AFAB Drag Queen @itsemmapanda Drag King @gavin_alarrf. Thanks to @doverdc, @dovertowncouncil @destinationdover and @acegrams for supporting the event.

The Mayor Cllr Gordon Cowan, Leader of DDC Trevor Bartlett and @keithbrymerjones for leading our procession. @blocofogosamba for the fantastic music.

Thanks to all those who carried lanterns, big builds and chandeliers. A very, very special thank you to Morris Pina @mrzart66 who valiantly did it all and we couldn’t have done it without him!!
