Friday 2nd December 2022
The Aldgate in Winter Festival will back this year, with the main event day taking place on Friday 2nd December, followed by a lantern exhibition w/c 5th December.
The festival will return with some firm favourites: the lantern parade, live events, creative workshops, market stalls, followed by the lantern exhibition.
The theme this year for the lanterns is Local Heroes. Local Heroes are nominated by the community curators, children and through this online form. They can be anyone in the community such as:
- someone who always drops round a pint of milk to you
- someone who goes the extra mile to make sure you and others are happy
- someone who always volunteers to help others
