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

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

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.

An exhibition created with local schools and inspired by Me and My Bee, a show in the Jump In! Family Arts Festival.
Albert Einstein said that without the bees, humans have four years left to live. We rely on bees to pollinate one third of the crops we use as food.
This special multi-sensory experience for diverse family audiences including children with SEN, explores the importance and plight of bees, and gives ideas for what we can do to help the bee population.
Paula gained a degree in Art and Art History at Scarborough University in 1998 as a mature student.
Her career as an artist began as a ceramicist making quirky animals. She became interested in painting, initially as an abstract painter. Now she enjoys working with colour design and animals. She combines both in her animal portraits.
Led by Clare Lynskey
