Update September 2017

After a long fundraising campaign during spring and summer, the Bedminster Winter Lantern Parade organisers can now confirm that this year’s event will go ahead on the afternoon of Saturday December 9th.

School workshops have now started designing and creating the colourful illuminated lanterns that will be paraded on the streets in three months time. Nearly all the areas primary schools will be represented as well as a growing number of community organisations who’ll be making their own lanterns for the Parade. 

As usual, the event has its roots firmly in the BS3 part of Bristol, but this year there’s likely to be an added ‘continental’ flavour with some schools and groups acknowledging the long established twinning links between the city and Bordeaux and Oporto.
