The rural village of Wrotham in Tonbridge and Malling was transformed with a series of light installations as the community came together for the annual Wrotham Festival of Light. The festival which has been running for nearly 10 years also featured a lantern parade, musical performances, street entertainment and a spectacular fireworks finale.

The festival was organised in partnership by Cohesion Plus, Kent Equality Cohesion Council, Saint Georges Primary School and Same Sky Arts.

Civic guests in attendance included Deputy Lord Lieutenant Nadrah Ahmed OBE, Mayor of Tonbridge and Malling, Cllr Sue Bell and Kent County Council Chair, Cllr Lesley Game.

Gurvinder Sandher MBE the CEO of Kent Equality Cohesion Council commented “I was so pleased with how well the festival of light was received in Wrotham. It is important that through our work we engage and support rural communities where we can, and this event is a great way of doing this. I am grateful to all of our partners for their help and support in the build-up and on the day.”
