Sunday 18 November 2018

Ring in the festive cheer with Gloucester’s stunning annual Lantern Procession.

Reflect on the true meaning of Christmas at the annual service to celebrate the switch on of the Christmas lights in the city and the start of the festive season. Meet the city procession headed by Father Christmas, the Town Crier, civic leaders, samba bands and local children carrying giant lanterns. This year the theme will be 'The Snow queen".

The parade travels along the procession route (Southgate Street, Westgate Street and College Street), the cities Christmas Lights get switched on as the parade passes each set of lights on it's way to the Cathedral.

The spectacular procession will then come to an end in the aisles of the Cathedral with a short free carol service and refreshments in the Cloisters at 5pm.
