Lantern Parade and Christmas Tree Lighting

Mon, 9 December 2019

On a chilly evening on Saturday 30th November 2019, Wincanton Town Council and Chamber of Commerce held a festive Christmas Lantern Parade and Christmas Tree Lighting spectacular.

The Lantern Parade was supported by Wincanton Silver Band, with Father Christmas as the special guest, who as if by magic switched on the Christmas Tree Lights following a count down by young and old alike.

The Town Mayor Sue Shelbourn-Barrow said a huge thank you to all those that helped make the night a success including Wincanton Primary School choir and Wincanton Silver Band who accompanied the town in carols, whilst snow drifted across the Market Place.

A great night was had by all.

For those that entered the Lantern Competition, we are looking forward to sharing the names on Saturday 21st December 2019 at the Seed Market in the Sarah Gibson Optometrist.

Have a great December and we look forward to seeing you in 2020.
