Holburne lanterns light up Bath.

Well, the good news is that window of dry weather opportunity came true for the hundreds of adults and youngsters who took part in this year’s  Holburne Museum Lantern Procession which set off from the Sydney Garden’s end of Great Pulteney Street at 6 o’clock this evening. (Thursday, November 19th)

Just one of the amazing mythical creatures in this year’s procession.

It’s got to be the biggest and best-produced procession to date. This year’s theme was the Enchanted Forest and its birds, beasts, trees and mythical creatures. The procession made its way up Great Pulteney Street and into Parade Gardens.

The city’s Christmas illuminations were also switched on this evening.

Those taking part are asked to gather at 5.30 pm. Every year children and adults get down to the serious business of making lanterns out of withy and tissue paper.

See if you can spot yourself – or just enjoy some of the highlights and tell your friends it’s all on the Virtual Museum of Bath.
