Lantern Parade & Late Night Opening

Date: 
Thursday 6th December 2018
18:15 - 20:00

The popular annual Lantern Parade will start its journey from the Close, at 18.15, and wend its way through the city to Market Place.

As well as joining or viewing the parade, you can also enjoy the festive lighting in the Cathedral and the Close at its best... after dark. Walk through the 'Light Wave' in the Close, admire the neon trees in the Cloisters and the mesmerising illuminated globe in the Cathedral. You can also join a short tour up to the West Window to view the lights inside from on high. Music in the Cloisters will add to the joyful atmosphere.
