Events 15 December 2017
New Romney Lantern Parade - Light up New Romney
Love New Romney has teamed up with the New Romney Country Fayre Committee and the Old School Trust to bring some Christmas cheer to New Romney High Street. The team are planning the first ever Community Lantern Parade, entertainment and Carol Singing on Friday 15th December to get everyone into the Christmas spirit as part of the town’s celebrations.
The evening’s festivities will kick off with a free Punch and Judy show in the High Street at 4.30 pm. This will give plenty of time to visit the local shops, many of whom will be participating in the Christmas fun. There will be a Santa’s Grotto to explore and he is even lending his reindeer to the town for the evening!
A magical lantern parade will then begin at 5.30 pm from West Street, accompanied by Father Christmas on his sleigh. The parade route will wind through the High Street to the illuminated Old School Garden where an array of Christmas carols and songs, including New Romney’s very own 12 Days of Christmas Megamix will be led by the Seaside Singers.
Refreshments will be on sale and it will be a chance for the people of New Romney to get together to share in the pre-Christmas excitement.
