The Carnival of the Animals - Maidenhead's Community Lantern Parade

We are excited to bring the annual Community Lantern Parade to Maidenhead town centre on Saturday 9 December.

The event begins with live music and entertainment from 4x4 Bhangra - The Kings of Bhangra outside Maidenhead Town Hall from 4.30pm.

The Lantern Parade is free to attend and suitable for all ages.


What happens when!

  • 4.30pm Live music and entertainment from 4x4 Bhangra

  • 5pm Parade departs from Maidenhead Town Hall and is led through the streets of the town by 4x4 Bhangra and Beatroots Samba Band

  • 6pm More live music and entertainment

Lanterns are waterproof so the parade will go ahead come rain or snow!

All are welcome at the parade – with or without lanterns. Simply turn up and walk through the town centre with the parade.

If you have made lanterns at one of our workshops, Norden Farm’s Young Volunteers will be on hand to help illuminate the lanterns and guide the parade.

Don’t Forget The Soap!

With the nation's hand washing on the up and soap opera filming at a standstill, this term will be about creating our very own Lockdown Soap Opera. We’ll practically explore the genre of continuous drama (TV soaps), focusing on learning screen acting and some writing techniques along the way. Furthering our understanding of how to bring engaging and believable characters to life, we will discover how to hook an audience through dramatic storylines but keep the truth of the characters we create on screen.
