The Tameside Winter Lantern Parade Is Back for 2021

The spectacular winter carnival Northern Lights parade will launch Tameside’s Christmas Light Switch On’s and celebrations for 2021 and will take place in Hyde On Saturday 20th November 2021, from 6pm finishing at 7pm.

Managed and co-ordinated by Tameside Cultural Services, it will be produced by carnival arts organisation Handmade Parade with support from community groups and schools. Whilst local artists, community groups and schools will help animate Hyde Civic Square.

There will also be opportunities for families and individuals to get involved in lantern-making workshops at Hyde Town Hall and other locations around Hyde. 

Cllr Leanne Feeley, Tameside Council’s executive member with responsibility for culture, said: “I’m delighted that we’re able to bring back our winter lantern parade, and I want to see as many people as possible get involved in what will be a very special night not just for Hyde, but for the entire borough.

“After two very difficult years the parade offers a chance for everyone in the Tameside community to enjoy some fun while at the same time offering a chance for them to reflect on all the things that have happened, and to focus on their hopes for the future.

“It promises to be a wonderful event and I’m sure the civic square will look spectacular and atmospheric as the light from hundreds of lanterns twinkles brightly against the dark November night.”

Seasonal celebrations and community and businesses-led Christmas events have also been planned in Tameside’s other towns for later in November and December.
