MAGICAL LANTERN FESTIVAL YORKSHIRE
CHRISTMAS @ ROUNDHAY
The Magical Lantern Festival makes its debut in Yorkshire at Roundhay Park in Leeds following the hugely successful UK launch in London last year.
We promise visitors a truly amazing experience, a visual feast of light and illumination, hidden amongst the grandeur of Europe’s largest city park, which lends itself perfectly to the layout of the lanterns with its combination of lakes, woodland, gardens and pathways.
Visitors will see some of the most artistic and beautifully constructed lantern installations outside of China.The lanterns represent and celebrate Xmas and Chinese culture and heritage.
The festival offers endless fun and will tantalise and tease children’s senses leaving them in awe of their surroundings! At the end of the festival children will enter the entertainment area where they can visit Santa’s Grotto, sample delicious hot food from around the world and enjoy the funfair and games.
Children will be mesmerised by the fantastic array of colours, brightly lit giant lanterns in the shape of santa, reindeers, Xmas trees, flowers, plants, camels, London Bus, giant panda, giant fish and so much more…..
The festival will be open everyday throughout the Xmas school holidays apart from Xmas Eve and Xmas Day, making the festival the perfect destination for a family night out!
