The Carnival of the Animals - Lantern Parade

About

The Carnival of the Animals Lantern Parade returns to illuminate Maidenhead on Saturday 7 December!

This year we will be joined by 8-piece London-based Brass Band, The Brass Funkeys who bring pumping brass driven funk to lead you on the route!

The event is free to attend and open to all! And you don't need a lantern to take part - just come down and celebrate with the community.

You can get involved at our Lantern Making workshops, running throughout November and December. Our public workshops are held at Norden Farm and in Maidenhead Town Centre.

Create an animal inspired lantern by weaving and decorating willow. Our expert lantern makers will guide you through the process and you will have a lantern ready to illuminate at the parade.
