Children's Lantern Parade
Tel: +44 0191 384 6153
The Children's Lantern Parade returns in 2022 after a 2 year break … we can't wait.
The Children's Lantern Parade is one of the highlights of Durham Christmas Festival and to many families 'the beginning' of the Christmas season – it will take place on the afternoon of Saturday 3rd December, departing from Durham Market Place at 2.30pm.
Lanterns can be reserved in advance and collected on the day from the Market Place.
The parade leaves the Market Place at 2.30pm following the Chester-le-Street Salvation Army Band up to Palace Green, and arriving at Durham Cathedral for the St Nicholas Service at 3pm.
We shall launch Lantern Reservations a few months before the festival. Please return to this page before the festival to reserve lantern(s).
It is recommended that lanterns are suitable for children up to age 12, but all ages are welcome to participate in the parade and attend the St Nicholas Service. Children take their lantern home with them after the procession.
See Durham Christmas Festival website for more information.
Lanterns cost £6 and children can keep them after the parade.
