Finnish Festivities with Brighton Fringe on 6 December

Finnish Festivities with Brighton Fringe on 6 December

06.12.2017 | Contemporary art

Join us for a celebration marking the centenary of Finnish independence

We will gather around ‘Treecycle’, the Festive Installation by Ilona Valkonen from the Finnish Art Group Vieno Motors. The tree installation is located outside St Peter’s Church, in the heart of Brighton.

Starting from 4.30pm on 6 December, Finland’s 100th independence day, carols will be sung around the decorated tree and a selection of Finnish cakes and non-alcoholic Glöggi will be served to keep everyone warm. Mo Marsh, Mayor of Brighton and Hove, will also be joining us and giving a speech at the event.

There will even be an appearance from Santa, all the way from Lapland in Finland!

See the Facebook event here. Everyone is welcome!


The unveiling of ‘Treecycle’ and Finnish festivities mark the start of a collaboration between Brighton Fringe and The Finnish Institute in London, which will include a Finnish season at Brighton Fringe 2018. Read more about the Treecycle project here.
