This year’s Cockermouth lantern parade will take place on Friday 1 December, starting at 6pm (gather from 5:30pm) by the Town Hall as usual. It’s going to link in with the on-going renovation of the confluence area so will have a ‘river’ theme and will finish with a shadow-puppet performance on the confluence area itself, which people will view from the other side of the river.
