Save The Lantern Parade


The future of South Bristol’s most popular community event - the Bedminster Winter Lantern Parade - is under threat due to funding cuts.

A BWL Fundraising Brainstorm Meeting has been arranged to see if the community can come up with ideas to make up the shortfall - and sign up to organise and/or help. This meeting will take place at St Francis Church, the Parade’s traditional starting point, on Monday 20 March starting at 7.30pm.

This year's lantern parade was the biggest and best yet, it would be a terrible shame to allow it to be discontinued so please get involved and do what you can to help us keep this event going.

The Chairman of Bedminster Winter Lanterns, Malcolm Brammar, says “This year is looking particularly difficult. There’s likely to be a large hole in our projected budget which could be critical. So we’re asking the community - individuals, groups and local businesses - to get
involved and help us raise funds to continue this very special local event.

Every effort will count: from tea parties to jumble sales, school disco’s to market stalls. We’ll consider anything as long as it’s legal!”
