Alresford Christmas Lantern Procession

Alresford Christmas Lantern Procession

Date: 24th Nov 2023
Time: 5:30pm
Price: Range from Free

Start the festive season with a spectacular lantern procession through the streets of Alresford. Starting at Perins School, the procession will culminate at Alresford Station in time to see the arrival of our magnificent Steam Illuminations train. Once all the lanterns arrive at The Watercress Line, there will be live, traditional Christmas music and songs with local folk band Shantyhead.

Everyone is invited to be a part of the procession, young and old, families, schools and groups. Bring a willow and paper lantern which can be as small or as huge as you like. It can be a simple creation or a group engineering masterpiece. And if you don’t know how to make one, it’s easy!

We will be running local lantern making workshops from mid-October. Click here if you want to know more. Alternatively, you can download our helpful sheet, or you can find plenty of ideas online.

Start time: 5.30pm.

Entry is free but you need to register to take part by 13 November.
Please download, complete and return the booking form to reserve your place.

(If you don’t want to make a lantern or take part in the procession, spectators are also welcome along the route in West Street, Station Road or at Alresford Station).
