Support Us

Three years ago funding for the event was cut and more recently in 2015, our long running grant was axed so we are now organizing the parade ourselves with the support of generous companies and people like you.

You can make a donation towards this years lantern parade by attending one of our many lantern making workshops or by making a small donation towards the parade. To find out more about how to donate, Please visit our support us page.
