Weʼre raising £2,500 to Help get Dunster by Candlelight back on track for 2022
- Dunster, Somerset, England.
Don't have time to donate right now?
We are sorry that Candlelight 2021 cannot go ahead but we are hoping and working towards 2022. Keep in touch and support us where you can.
HOW CANDLELIGHT STARTED
Candlelight was established in 1986 to help promote our beautiful village and to help the businesses continue to flourish after the tourists had gone and the Castle closed. This has proved successful. It has grown and provides resources and finances to the wider community with all the visitors. To put the Dunster by Candlelight Event on we have to raise money to pay for the infrastructure, lights, performers, transport, road closure etc., etc., The thousands of visitors who come to Candlelight enables us to 'collect' and raise money for St. Margaret's Hospice. If there was no Event there would be no money for the Charity. One thing we have always been proud of is the fact (up to now) it has been possible to come to Candlelight, enjoy all the entertainment and atmosphere without it costing you a penny. That may not be able to continue but we can hope.
Candlelight has now become a tradition and copied around the Country. We have people coming back year after year but due to Covid etc., and the problems so many businesses have had we need your help to get back on track for 2022. Lots of you reading this will have been to Candlelight and had a wonderful time, so please help us to keep going. No matter how much you feel you can give, the money will ensure that Candlelight continues.

We have enjoyed Dunster by Candlelight so much over the years, it would be very sad if it stopped.
