Bolsover Christmas Festival and Lantern Parade is an annual event for the small market town of Bolsover which never ceases to delight. From Castle walls, to market stalls and Assembly Halls, Bolsover will be bursting with festive traders, family entertainment and wonderful food and drink stalls. Now in its 26th year, Junction Arts’ well-loved lantern parade is the mesmerising finale of the day, setting off from Bolsover Castle and parading around the town, creating a spectacular bright winter night for all to enjoy.

English Heritage is offering free access to the Castle between 10am and 4pm for local S44 residents (with proof of address eg a utility bill). This is a fantastic opportunity for local people to explore what is on their doorstep and visit the wider Christmas Festival.

Please note that normal admission prices applies for non-locals. 

In 2019 we will be welcoming performances from the Constell8 project, Bolsover Rhythm and Rhyme as well as our friends at Handmade Samba Band.

We can’t wait to meet our extraordinarily talented lantern makers in 2019. For more information about our community lantern workshops: please visit here: https://junctionarts.org/events/community-lantern-workshops/
