Cardigan Lantern Parade 2018

Friday 7th of December 2018

Giant Lantern Parade will light up Cardigan on 7 December 2018!

We are delighted to announce that Cardigan can look forward to another creative and imaginative Giant Lantern Parade on 7 December 2018 starting 7pm thanks to a grant from the Big Lottery Fund. We would also like to thank Tesco Bags of Help for their contribution to lantern making workshops and materials.

This year we’ll be celebrating Visit Wales’ Year of the Sea and creating giant lantern structures as well as hundreds of smaller lanterns for a spectacular procession. The Parade will follow Cardigan’s High Street and finish in the grounds of Cardigan Castle.

There will be an abundance of food in the Castle grounds supplied by Kitchen | Cegin 1176 and cooked by Tom Holden and his team. Expect a traditional Hog Roast, Hot Dogs and Chick Pea and Roast Pepper Burgers (V). The restaurant will also offer delicious hot chocolate, festive mulled wine and other hot drinks and a bar.

Small World Theatre’s sea monster Cragen is making a special illuminated appearance on the River Teifi at Prince Charles Quay, marking the end of her magnificent #cleanseas tour cleanseascragen.wales

Book ahead and join a free Public Lantern Making session at Small World Theatre on 4, 11 or 18 November from 10.30am – 4pm.

Spend the morning creating your lantern framework using sustainable materials. Get messy in the the afternoon adding glue and tissue paper to your willow frame. Please note that you will need to spend the day with Small World Theatre. Bring a pack lunch. Suitable for ages 6 +. All lanterns are stored safely at Small World Theatre until the Parade.
