Brinnington Lantern Procession 2013

Fifteen years ago, the makings of an idea flourished in what was the first lantern procession held in Brinnington. There were about 30 or 40 people in total bringing the parade around the estate. 2012 saw the biggest procession going around the estate.

2013 aims to be bigger still.

There are many ways in which you can get involved with this years lantern procession, from making the lanterns, to being stewards and reaping the rewards of a night well spent. 

If you’re interested in being a steward or want to contribute to the procession in any way, or want information about the event, please contact Mary Dutton (07701018332) who is also available on facebook too.
