The lights of Walcot Street.

Well, l certainly hope what l witnessed in Walcot Street last night will be the start of a new city festive tradition.

Schools and community groups coming together to hold a procession of lanterns.


It revived an established event that used to be held through Great Pulteney Street and was organised by the Holburne Museum.

As that establishment had to prioritise funds elsewhere it seemed the idea was dead but Walcot Street traders and Bath Fringe have had a go at reviving the event elsewhere in the city.


I have no idea if the cost of road closures outweighs the success of the procession but l certainly hope it is here to stay.

Let it grow!
