High Street, Bromsgrove, B61 8, United Kingdom
An accessible, large-scale lantern procession guided through Bromsgrove town centre, engaging local schools, families and community groups

The Festival of Light will bring the people of Bromsgrove together in a community focused celebration of togetherness, light and the Winter season.

Artrix will be collaborating with associate artist, Kristoffer Huball and outdoor arts company Beautiful Creatures to add to the visual spectacle, bringing their 20ft giant puppet through the town centre as he searches for the community spirit of Bromsgrove.

You can make your own lantern for the procession by taking part in our free lantern making workshops. There are workshops for making a standard pyramid lantern (Sat 2nd & Sun 3rd Dec) or you can try your hand at Lantern Making For The Brave on Sat 9th & Sun 10th Dec.

The event will be hosted by BBC Hereford and Worcester’s Tammy Gooding and the procession will be led by Someone at the Door Samba Band, and culminate with The Destroyers, a Balkan Gypsy Band for the finale.

Join in or just admire and soak up the atmosphere as the candle lit procession travels from Poundland to Argos on Bromsgrove's High Street.

This is a FREE family event (No booking required)

Everybody welcome!

******PLEASE NOTE no lanterns will be released into the sky at this event ******
