Lantern Festival

A magical torchlight procession

Just because it's cold and dark outside doesn't mean we can't have an outdoor celebration. Every year, local residents prove this by wrapping up in their warmest clothes and joining us for a torchlight street procession. And the result is magical. 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?!

Have a look through the Gallery on the right to see photos from previous years' fantastic events.
