Bridport Torchlight Procession

Part of the Bridport Carnival, the torchlight procession runs from Bridport to West Bay on the last day of the celebrations. This amazing spectacle involves over 1,000 blazing torches being carried by families along the 1.7 mile route from Buckydoo Square in Bridport to East Beach at West Bay, where there is a bonfire, live music and fireworks. Purchase your torches from the centre of Bridport before the parade starts.
