Announcing the 2015 Bedminster Winter Lantern Parade?

Will they? Won’t they? Arg! I can’t wait to find out?  Why are they torturing me?  Just spill it, already!!!


It’s worse than the cliff-hanger of a certain recent drama series, isn’t it?

Shall I put you out of your misery?


Well, ok then!

The 2014 Bedminster Winter Lantern Parade was an unbelievably crazy success – the amazing lanterns, the wonderful musicians, the electric atmosphere across Bedminster and, of course, the utterly fantastic firework display at South Street Park!

So, we totally have to do this again but (yep, there’s a “but”) if we are going to do this, we’re going to need some help.

We’ve crunched the numbers and if we want to put on the Lantern Parade this year, we need to raise £14,000.


How do we get to the £14,000?

Well, we will be seeking funding from some fabulous initiatives and we’ll be doing a whole bunch of activities to raise funds again this year – more on that to follow – but we need the creative, fundraising awesomeness of you lovely folk to help us get over the line.

Are you a baker or jam maker who can sell your tasty wares?  Are you a musician who could take part in a music night or can you use your fantastic organisational skills to run a charity music night?  Can you run a fundraising quiz?  Are you a business owner who could donate something towards a prize draw?  Can you host a fundraising wine-tasting?  What about your car boot sale skills? 

Do you have an amazing idea that you can put into action and raise some dosh?

If you would like to help make the 2015 Bedminster Winter Lantern Parade a reality, just get in touch with us, either via the #bemmylanterns Facebook, Twitter or by email.

Remember, however grand and glorious or small and perfectly formed, every single bit of cash can help us light up the streets of Bedminster again!

Love from the #bemmylanterns team! x
