This year’s Valentine Gas Lamp Lighting Celebration will be held on  Tuesday 14th February. Bring your romantic lanterns!

The famous Valentine Gas Lamp in Frome is one of the town’s most romantic landmarks – set around heart-shaped cobblestones with a newly restored ‘love seat’ under the glow of the gas lamp, looking down the historic cobbled street of Catherine Hill.

The annual Valentine Gas Lamp Lighting Ceremony has been celebrated for the past 24 years. A painstaking restoration project on the lamp has been in progress for the past few years, carried out by its originator, Reg Ling.

A traditional lighting celebration will take place again this year despite minor finishing touches that are needed to the artwork, and the final installation of the mailbox which is currently being restored by Royal Mail.
