Look out for the Pirates of the Lagan Lantern Parade in Belfast

East Belfasters might remember the CS Lewis / Narnia lantern parade through the streets last November. Certainly I remember wheeling a pram with a near-sleeping daughter in it through the noisy streets, trying to keep her out of earshot of the drums and music. Some shaky photos can be seen across at Letter to America.

This year the Pirates of the Lagan Lantern Parade will be held on Saturday 9 December, with the East Belfast contingent leaving Bridge End at 7pm, and snaking through to join the other groups at the City Hall to its conclusion in Custom House Square.

A date for your diaries – wrap up warm!

And if you’d like to participate in the parade rather than just spectating, lantern and costume workshops are being held between 7-9pm at the Wandsworth Community Centre (26a Belmont Road) on Mon 20 Nov and Mon 4 Dec. Alison’s contact details are on their website if you want to book onto the workshops.
