The Hive Christmas Lantern Parade

Published Tuesday, 1st December 2015

The Hive is inviting children and families to join their annual lantern parade taking place on Thursday 10 December at 6pm.


Lanterns made by children at The Hive's lantern making workshops and at St Clements School will be lit and carried from outside the Infirmary Museum, Infirmary Walk along a decorated route through City Campus and to The Hive.  The lantern bearers will be accompanied by musicians and performers.


Laura Worsfold, Business Development Manager said: "The Hive's lantern parade is growing each year and marks the start of Christmas for us. It is really magical to watch and the atmosphere is lovely as the children are so excited.


"This will be our third parade and we are expecting about 100 local school children who have made lanterns to take part. But all children are invited, if they haven't got a lantern they just need to bring a torch or glittery light.  The more the merrier!"


The parade will set off from outside the Infirmary Museum, Infirmary Walk, Castle Street, Worcester, WR1 3AS, through City Campus to The Hive.  It will last for about 15 - 20 minutes and will be followed by singing inside The Hive by Worcester Volcano Community Choir.  Anyone wishing to take part should meet outside the Infirmary Museum at 5.45pm.


The parade marks the start of The Hive's Christmas weekend with two performances of the Christmas show 'The Amazing Adventures of Librarian Lil', Christmas singing by Chadsgrove Special School Choir and a free Elizabethan Christmas decoration making workshop all taking place on Saturday 12 December.
