Newbury Winter Lantern Trail

11 December, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 13 December, 2020 @ 7:50 pm

The Newbury Winter Lantern Trail is free but pre-booking is required.

Our annual Festival of Light takes on a reimagined format for 2020!

This year we invite you to join us for a one-off explosion of creativity featuring sculptural lanterns by Thingumajig Theatre, Handmade Parade, Rag and Bone and other artists from around the country.

Beautiful sculptural lanterns, light and music will guide you on a magical journey along the banks of the Kennet & Avon canal. Come together with your family and bubbles to experience the warmth of winter celebration in a safe and socially distanced fashion.

Please reserve 1 ticket per member of your household up to a maximum of 6 tickets. Children under 18 months do not need a ticket. Timed slots are available every ten minutes between 5pm and 8pm each night.

This booking will be a reservation while we await more information from the government as to whether the lockdown will be easing or if restrictions will remain. We will contact you on 5 December via e-mail to ask you to confirm by 8 December that you still require all of your reserved tickets. Following receipt of your confirmation you will be sent your e-ticket no later than 24 hours ahead of the event.

Arrival & Tickets
In order to ensure the safety of all guests, please only arrive at the time of your pre-booked tickets. There will be a short queue outside St. Nics Church on St. Bartholomew Street. Our stewards will be there to guide you and we ask that you help us to maintain social distancing while waiting.

You do not need printed tickets, please just have your booking confirmation ready to show on a phone when you arrive. Also, If you can no longer attend please let us know so that we can offer your tickets to another party.

The Route
The trail begins at St. Nics Church and takes you on a journey along West Mills over the footbridge and along the Canal Path. This takes approximately 30 minutes to complete
