The lantern parade is back for 2019, but bigger and better than ever! Make your own lantern with Bella Crafts, see the displays in the Cathedral, and join a fun family parade starting from the Cathedral and finishing with a stunning fireworks display.

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.

To register your lantern please call the Cathedral Box Office on 01962 857 275 or email box.office@winchester-cathedral.org.uk

The  Dean and a representative from Bella Crafts will be judging the lanterns on the night and prizes will be given for creativity and beauty. There are a number of family ice skating tickets to be won.
