Community backs the revival of spectacular Giant Lantern Parade

CARDIGAN Giant Lantern Parade brought to you by Small World Theatre, will be held on Friday 8 December at 7pm, supported by Cardigan Town Council, Leafed Through community bookshop, Ceredigion County Council and an amazing public fundraising appeal.
With great delight, a spokesperson for Small World Theatre announced that they have reached their fundraising target. A public campaign to raise £2,000 to cover the cost of lantern making materials began in October. “Over 80 donations from local people have ensured that lantern making workshops were free in November. We will continue lantern making with pupils from Ysgol Gynradd Aberteifi and Ysgol Uwchradd Aberteifi to add more spectacle to the parade.”

Cardigan Giant Lantern Parade is a ‘Fanastical Beasts’ theme this year. Visitors can expect to see familiar and mythological creatures made into giant lantern structures, as well as hundreds of smaller pyramid lanterns.

The Parade will leave Pendre at 7pm accompanied by musicians. It will process along the High Street and into the grounds of Cardigan Castle, where there will be fire jugglers, delicious food and drink supplied by Kitchen 1176, and a fireworks display around 8pm.
