Magical Lantern Parade

This event has now ended.
24th February 2019
4pm - 6pm
Free event

Join us for a magical lantern parade down our wedding avenue and into the walled garden where bonfires, marshmallow toasting, music and food will add to the fun.  Drummer will lead the procession. Bring your own lantern or make one at Old Down during February (lantern kits £5).

Event opens at 4pm so that you can enjoy time in the Walled Garden before the Parade.   The Parade will now gather from 5pm and begin at 5.30 to ensure that it’s dark enough to enjoy the full effect of the Lanterns.

In the event of poor weather conditions the event might have to be cancelled and we will post a notification on Facebook and the website.   We will endeavour to make this decision 24hrs ahead of the event

The Parade is free but if you would like to walk the parade with your friends, family, school or group then please email
