Share your lanterns!

We want to see your masterpieces illuminated – hold your own mini parade around the living room or in the garden! Send your photos and videos to robyn.bunyan@nordenfarm.org and we will include them in our Lantern Trail short film. You can also share your photos with us on social media – remember to tag @nordenfarm using #LanternTrail2020


The Carnival of the Animals: Lantern Trail

This year’s parade is replaced with a Lantern Trail – brightly coloured lanterns will be displayed in locations around the Town Centre, at Norden Farm and in the community. Become part of the trail by putting your illuminated lantern in your window – let’s light up the community!
