A welcome return for this community events which brings people together for a magical evening lighting up our beautiful town centre.

Every year around 1,000 lanterns parade through the town, whatever the weather. Entertainment starts at the Pump Room Gardens Bandstand approximately 30 minutes before the parade sets off.

The route winds its way around the Pump Room Gardens, up Bedford Street to Warwick Street and then along to the Parade before heading back down to the Town Hall, meeting Santa’s reindeer along the way. The Royal Spa Brass Band then join in for Christmas carols on the Town Hall steps.

Create your own lanterns, meet at the Pump Room Gardens and light up Leamington Spa on December 5th.


Please join at 4.15pm at the Bandstand in the Royal Pump Room Gardens for some fun and entertainment before the parade sets off. The parade will set off around the gardens before following a route up Bedford Street to Warwick Street.  It will then take a right towards Parade and then follow the Parade down to the Town Hall.

Please take your time when moving in the procession and be careful of any obstacles. If you get cold please go to the foyer of the Travel Lodge (Regent Hotel). If you get separated or lost the lost / found children meeting point is at the entrance to the Town Hall.

The Parade will finish back at the Town Hall with some carols accompanied by the Spa Brass Band. There will also be some other nice surprises to see including ‘live reindeer’, glowing hula hoops and magical angels.


Watch the Lantern Parade from 4.15pm onwards from the Royal Pump Room Gardens.

Please come and enjoy an evening of Christmas fun and entertainment for the whole family. Please start in the Pump Room Gardens to watch the lanterns gather and then once the parade sets off move to the Town Hall.  We estimate this will be around 5.00pm. You can also enjoy some other nice surprises including ‘live reindeer’, glowing hula hoops and magical angels.

Don’t forget to wrap up warm as it will be a chilly evening.
