Dover Christmas lights

Dover was lit up again this Christmas with the annual Christmas Lights Switch On event which took take place on Saturday 23 November.
The fun started at 9am and continues to 5.30pm when the town Christmas Lights were turned on by the Town Mayor of Dover and Members of the Cast of the Marlowe Theatre's Jack & The Beanstalk.

Bloco Fogo were there playing around the Upper Precinct area to add some colour and carnival atmosphere to the event, drawing the crowds in as we played. We even managed to bring out the sun too !

It was also a very special event for Leonie, our very own Samba Mama, whose birthday was celebrated with music, cake and an amazing model of Leonie herself.

Dover Christmas Parade

Another Christmas light switch on parade, this time in Dover. Led by several Pantomime stars and some real Reindeer. We played through the old high street into the main square, then played after the lights went on back up through the high street. Great event with a lot of people packed into the town.

We even managed to get on the big screen in the town square, with Roy carrying the flag and Belinda having just a single remaining light working.
