Magical Lantern Festival Birmingham is back and it's bigger, better and so much more impressive than last year! The stunning landscaped grounds of Kings Heath Park plays host to the festival this year.

This year's Christmas themed Lantern Festival will illuminate the park turning it into a spectacular fusion of dual culture, vibrant colors, and artistic sculptures! Prepare to enter a magical experience and discover life-size and larger-than-life lanterns in all shapes and forms, from a 'Gingerbread House' to a magnificent giant lantern recreation of the iconic 'Birmingham Central Library'.  

The festival will not only wow visitors with its beautiful hand-sculpted lanterns, the entertainment area adds another dimension to this wonderful night out with a food and drink area, Santa's Grotto, a handful of fairground rides for children and merchandise marquee where visitors can buy a souvenir of their experience to take home. There is no better family-friendly festival to visit this Christmas.....

Lights! Camera! Instagram filter! The UK’s answer to China’s New Year’s lantern festival returns, this time to Chiswick House Gardens, with more than 50 glowing installations on a Silk Road theme (not the drugs darknet; the original one, the ancient trade network linking Asia to the west). Expect plenty of animals (including pandas) and the odd admiral’s ship.
