Spectacular light shows, parades, fireworks, food and drink bacchanals, art shows, carnivals … tell us about the best winter event you’ve experienced on your travels
As the clocks go back and evening skies darken, outdoor events take on a special atmosphere, whether they are on city streets, up mountains or in forests. Please share details of your favourite winter festivals in the UK and across Europe.
They could involve celebrations based around local produce, traditions going back centuries, light festivals or a lent carnival knees up. We’re not looking for Christmas festivals or markets this time, however – that’s a category of its own.
