Support The Parade

About the event

Norden Farm's Community Lantern Parade will once again illuminate Maidenhead's High Street on Saturday 8 December 2018.

Now entering it's 10th year, this large-scale community arts project has become a firm part of Maidenhead Town Centre’s calendar, and has grown year on year.

2017’s community Lantern Parade engaged with 2473 people across the whole project, with 1525 of those watching and taking part in the parade itself.

Figures supplied by the Town Centre Manager Steph James have shown that total footfall in Maidenhead Town Centre on Saturday 9 December 2017 was 26,852, the busiest day of that week.

During the hours of the Lantern Parade (4.30pm – 6.30pm) the High Street reached a peak of approximately 3,000 people.

'From spoken word and folk music, to film screenings and lantern parades, Norden Farm Centre for the Arts is renowned for its eclectic, ambitious programme. Not bad for an old dairy farm on the outskirts of Maidenhead.'
