Giant Lantern Parade will light up Cardigan on 7 December 2018!
Small World Theatre is delighted to announce that Cardigan can look forward to another creative and imaginative Giant Lantern Parade on 7 December 2018 starting 7pm thanks to a grant from the Big Lottery Fund. We would also like to thank Tesco Bags of Help for their contribution to lantern making workshops and materials.
This year we’ll be celebrating Visit Wales’ Year of the Sea and creating giant lantern structures as well as hundreds of smaller lanterns for a spectacular procession. The Parade will follow Cardigan’s High Street, go down St Mary’s Street along The Strand and finish in the grounds of Cardigan Castle.
Small World Theatre’s sea monster Cragen is making a special illuminated appearance opposite The Strand marking the end of her magnificent #cleanseas tour cleanseascragen.wales. Those who are part of the Parade will have an opportunity to pause and view Cragen before they continue into the Castle grounds.
There will be an abundance of food in the Castle grounds supplied by Kitchen | Cegin 1176 and cooked by Tom Holden and his team. Expect a traditional Hog Roast, Hot Dogs and Chick Pea and Roast Pepper Burgers (V). The restaurant will also offer delicious hot chocolate, festive mulled wine and other hot drinks and a bar.
