Festival of Light: Lantern Procession

Sunday 11th Dec 2016, Northbrook Street, Newbury

FREE (no booking required)

A festive tradition within Newbury, the 7th Festival of Light: Lantern Procession gathers the community together to share in this stunning winter outdoor event.

Join us from 4pm as the Lantern bearers meet and start to light their lamps, with the procession starting from 4.30pm on Northbrook Street, and parading to Market Place in centre of Newbury Town Centre.

Why not come along to one of our free Lantern Making Workshops, or just come along on the day and enjoy the spectacle and atmosphere, as hundreds of lights process through the streets of Newbury.
