Fun for all the family, Winchester Cathedral's popular Winter event returns and everyone is welcome to join in.

The annual lantern parade returns to Winchester Cathedral, and this year the theme is Angels.

Join Winchester Cathedral in coming together to celebrate Christmas with music, lanterns, and the Christmas Market. Parade from Winchester Cathedral through Winchester with your lanterns and light the way back to the cathedral where The Reverend Canon Dr Roland Riem, Vice-Dean will judge all the lanterns and pick his three favourites with a prize for all.

His favourite lantern creator will help to switch on the Cathedral lights at the end of the parade.

Please note that registering interest is not essential for attendance but would be appreciated by Winchester Cathedral so preparations can be made for expected numbers.

Arts and crafts not your thing? Don’t worry, the parade is a great event for all the family, whether you come to display your own creation, or you join just to enjoy the colourful spectacle. Lap up the atmosphere and admire the skilfully made weird and wonderful lanterns.
