Wrap up in your warmest clothes and join us for a magical torchlight street procession. Hundreds of people, carrying dozens of unique, hand-made, glowing lanterns, parading proudly around Morecambe’s West End, accompanied by choirs, musicians and street performers - what better way to beat the winter blues.

The lantern procession starts at Sandylands School at 6pm.
