Vicky, from the Town Council’s Facilities Team, is already looking forward to the winter months . . .

“We are really hopeful for the return of the Trowbridge Lantern Festival in 2021 and are currently making plans for the event to take place on 27th November (subject to any COVID restrictions at the time). As in 2019, we hope that we can encourage lots of participation from local schools and groups and we will be looking to send our wonderful artist out into the community to help create fabulous lanterns to form part of the parade. We also hope to be able to offer workshops for another Window Wanderland event following the success of 2020’s trail.

“Please get in touch with us if your school, community group, charity, Brownie or Scout group etc would like to get involved producing some beautiful willow lanterns.  We are really hopeful that there will be a little more normality by the Autumn and some fun, community focussed activities will be able to take place.  We would love to start building up a database of interested groups so that we can send you further information as soon as we have it.

“If you would like to express an interest in the Lantern Festival for 2021 please get in touch by emailing events@trowbridge.gov.uk and let me know the best person or email address to keep on file for updates.  We really missed the event last Christmas, so we’re keen to make it bigger and brighter this year!”
