Join us in Bridlington on the evening of Friday 10th February for a magical lantern parade inspired by the epic journey of Odysseus, following the construction of the mighty Trojan horse earlier in the autumn.

In this chapter of his adventure Odysseus meets the sorceress Circe, who turns his crew into a host of animals. Circe herself will be represented by a giant illuminated figure, leading the lanterns carried by members of community groups from the Bridlington area. It will walk southwards on the promenade from the Spa to the beach huts and back.

Expect to see a whole host of illuminated creatures on show, many inspired by the wildlife of the Yorkshire Coast. The parade starts at 6.00pm, Friday 10th February on the promenade between Bridlington Spa and the RNLI, heading south.

There will also be a free drop in session for families to make small lanterns for the event on Saturday 4th February from 10.30-12.30 at Bridlington Spa. Lanterns take approx 10 mins to make.

And if you miss the parade on the Friday evening, the lanterns will be on display in Sessions at Bridlington Spa on Saturday 11th February from 10.00 – 4.00.

It’s a great opportunity to celebrate the beauty of the coast and capture some great selfies with family and friends, admission is free and there’s no need to book.
