The lantern parade is back for 2018! Make your own lantern with Bella Crafts and join a fun family parade starting from the Cathedral and processing around the Outer Close.
The parade is a great event for all the family whether you participate or come just to enjoy the colourful spectacle, lap up the atmosphere and admire the skilfully made weird and wonderful lanterns.
The procession of colourful handmade paper and willow lanterns will leave the Cathedral at 6.30pm and parade around the Outer Close. The celebrations include live music, congregational carols led by Churches Together in Winchester and conclude with fireworks.
Lantern bearers and their families are welcome to arrive from 5.30pm onwards, with music and carols in the Cathedral from 6.00pm. The parade will leave the Cathedral at 6.30pm and process around the Outer Close.
All are welcome but please register (free) with the Cathedral Box Office at the link below.
