The Candle Project, Brighton Festival

An ode to resilience, a celebration of shadow and light, an ancient ritual for our times - and Coastline Harmony is part of it.

Artist Abigail Conway has created a spectacular and participatory installation in The Spire in Brighton, bringing together people from across the city to make candles, write words of hope and listen to songs and sounds in a time of transition.

We’re thrilled that two of our most loved songs – Candle on the Water and Can You Feel the Love Tonight – will be part of this incredible artwork.

There are candle-making sessions all week from Monday 24 May and a special Lighting Ceremony on Saturday 29 May at 8pm which will be livestreamed for those who can’t be there in person.

For more details, and how to reserve a FREE candle-making session, see the Brighton Festival website
