On Sunday 26th November, Bury welcomed a special family event as the Bury Lantern Parade took to the streets of Bury.

This special event saw families and school children parading through the streets showcasing special lanterns they’d made in facilitated workshops at school and at The Met. The event ran from 3pm – 6pm and included live music, a fire display and street entertainment and saw their spectacular creations light up the town centre.

The theme of the parade is wildlife, with the lanterns and puppetry creating a magical natural takeover of the town centre.

“We’re so excited to bring this community led event to Bury. We’ve had an incredible response to our school workshops and cannot wait to share Bury Town Centre with families and friends at this magical time of year”David Agnew, The Met

The event is has been commissioned by Bury BID, funded by the businesses of Bury Town Centre. Working in partnership with The Met, the event welcomed families and communities into the town centre for a wonderful wintry afternoon.
