After the huge success of previous years, Hexham Lantern Parade took place for the third year running on Friday 17 November 2023.
People were once again encouraged to find an existing lantern or create one at a series of free workshops at Queen’s Hall. Pupils from Hexham First School and The Sele First School worked with artists Deni Riach and Alan Scully to create giant dragon and dragonfly lanterns to lead the parade.

Inviting the people of Hexham to come together outside after dark to celebrate community, music and light, Hexham Lantern Parade has now taken place three years running.
