A lamp dedicated to everyone

Frome’s famous Valentine Gas Lamp has been celebrated in ceremony for the past 22 years, this year, the event promises something different, a unique ‘twist’ to the ceremony  – devised by Reg Ling, the lamp’s renovator.

The lamp is located at the top of Catherine Hill, and every year at 5:30pm on Valentines Day Reg sets off a rocket, summoning lantern-goers to the site. At 6:00pm he starts the lighting ceremony. He is delighted people still choose to take part in the formality.

Please do join in to celebrate Valentine’s night with the lighting of this unique lamp (Saturday 14th February).  You can bring your own romantic Valentine lanterns, decorated/designed however you wish – there will even be prizes for the best childrens’ and adults’ lanterns, as well as refreshments!
