Description

Peebles Hogmanay Torchlight Procession 2019

The Peebles Hogmanay Torchlight Procession is back again for 2019! This Hogmanay, a magical parade of fire will shimmer its way through the beautiful streets of Peebles, bringing warmth and fun to the cold winter night.

Carry a torch for charity and join us for a special start to the Hogmanay celebrations – it’s perfect for families, friends, couples, visitors – everyone!

The procession promises a spectacular start to everyone's Hogmanay celebrations with its magical parade, live music and local food and drink.

To take part you can buy your voucher for your torch in advance on this page. You will then exchange this for your torch between 3pm and 6pm, at the Change Works on Peebles High Street, on 31st December prior to the procession assembling at 6.00pm ready for a 6.30pm departure. The procession will then depart on a route through Peebles bringing sparkle to the town on a dark winter night.

We look forward to celebrating Hogmanay with you!





Please note:

Anyone can take part in the procession, but only those over 16 years of age can purchase a torch. Any child under 16 years old must be supervised at all times (we recommend that there's one adult supervisor per torch). We advise that children under eight years old should not carry torches, but are welcome to come along on the procession with their friends and families. We have made the decision not to offer glowsticks this year due to the impact they have on the environment. You are however welcome to bring along your own.

TORCHES
The torch will be similar to the one in this picture, and can only be purchased by those over 16.





FAQs

How do I get my torch?
Print your email confirmation/voucher and take it to the torch pick up point on Peebles High Street (The Change Works) between 3pm and 6pm on the afternoon of the event, where you'll swap it for your torch/es.

Can my seven year old carry a torch?
Only children 8 or over can carry torches. All children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Can my 12 year old buy a torch?
Only people 16 years old or over can buy torches, but it's fine for children 8 or over to carry them. Adults can buy torches for children to carry but remain responsible for those children throughout the event.

Do we need to buy one torch each to take part?
No, it's fine to share a torch between you, but as the event aims to raise money for charities we'd ask no more than three people to a torch!

Can people join in as the procession goes along?
We ask that spectators don't join in along the way. People who wish to take part should buy a torch voucher for themselves :)

Is it a long walk?
No it's a short walk of around a mile through Peebles

How can I get involved?
