The Carnival of the Animals: Lantern Trail

The Lantern Parade is BACK – just not as you know it!

For over 10 years, Norden Farm has thrown light onto Maidenhead High Street as part of the annual Lantern Parade, and we can’t let Covid extinguish the magical lanterns.

Our 2020 Lantern Trail is a covid-friendly community project which will illuminate Maidenhead following a dark year.

You can explore the trail at any time from Sat 5 - 12 Dec, locations include Maidenhead Library, Filling Good and 124 Studios. Check out the interactive map below!

Get involved in our online Lantern Making Workshop


In the video above, Paul from Same Sky guides you through making your very own animal balloon lantern ahead of Norden Farm's covid-friendly Lantern Trail. Get creating your lanterns to help us light up Maidenhead!

You can purchase a Lantern Making Workshop pack on our website here.


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
