At the heart of Hanover


A free street event with hot food, mulled wine, light show and illuminating talks from 5pm to 8pm on Sunday 2nd Feb in Grant Street (off Islingword Road), Hanover.

Bring your own candles and jars!

Candlemas, Candelaria in Spanish, is half-way between the shortest day and the equinox (when day and night are equal); it’s Groundhog Day in the USA; the annual blessing for church beeswax candles; a time for pancakes in France – a great time to shake off winter blues, defy the weather and bring Hanover people together.
