Bloco Fogo led the way for the annual Tunbridge Wells Lantern parade through the towns streets. Hundreds of children with their hand made lanterns followed the band as it made it's way from the towns museum to St Barnabas school, with thousands of local people lining the streets for this ever popular event to brighten up the winter nights. This years theme was Myths and Legends and saw some amazing lanterns shaped like Unicorns, Cyclops, Mermaids, fish, a Phoenix and a special lantern celebrating the 75th Anniversary year of The Assembly Hall Theatre.
With a strong band in place and our flag wavers in abundance adding to the spectacle, this was an amazing event. Let's hope we are back again next year
