Festival of Light: Lantern Procession

Sunday 10th Dec 2017, Northbrook Street, Newbury

FREE (no booking required)

Come along for our annual Lantern Procession, a stunning winter event that brings the community together to celebrate the festive season. 

Join in or just admire and soak up the atmosphere as the candle-lit procession travels along Northbrook Street to the Market Place. Meet from 4pm to take part or 4.30pm to watch. 

There will be live music from Beatroots and Tankata Drummers during the procession. Stay on after to enjoy headliners Faith i Branko and other foodie festivities in the market place.

Create your very own lantern for the Lantern Procession at one of our FREE Lantern Making Workshops. Our workshops are very popular, so early booking is recommended.

Along with the support of our funders, we rely on donations to help fund activity and to ensure that events like the Lantern Procession are free for all, therefore please keep an eye out for our volunteers with collection buckets on the night. Alternatively you can donate here - thank you!
