Christmas at Roundhay
The Magical Lantern Festival makes its debut in Yorkshire at Roundhay Park in Leeds following the hugely successful UK launch in London last year.
The Magical Lantern Festival is a spectacular fusion of art, heritage and culture. A stunning outdoor Xmas themed event, a festival of light and illumination. Visitors will follow a trail around Roundhay Park and explore amazing giant lanterns, which represent Xmas, traditional Chinese culture and the amazing 2000-year heritage of Lantern Festivals.
Visitors will enter the festival through a giant 16 metre wide lantern entrance feature before they embark on a fascinating journey through the park uncovering stunning lanterns in all shapes, colours and sizes from santa and reindeers to flowers and animals.
We promise visitors a truly amazing experience, a visual feast of light and illumination, hidden amongst the grandeur of Europe’s largest city park, which lends itself perfectly to the layout of the lanterns with its combination of lakes, woodland, gardens and pathways.
Visitors will see some of the most artistic and beautifully constructed lantern installations outside of China. The lanterns represent and celebrate Xmas and Chinese culture and heritage.
The entertainment area adds another dimension to the experience with an international range of food and beverage vendors, Santa’s Grotto, festival merchandise, a fully equipped synthetic ice-rink, virtual reality gaming experience and a funfair with rides and games.
