2023 Lantern Parade
Stalbright is responsible for insuring the parade.
Therefore we require all participants in the parade to be registered in order to be covered by our insurance.
So, in a nutshell, no registration, no wrist band, no insurance cover - no joining the parade.
Here's a FAQ section to help you get ready:

How do I get my wrist band ? – Available at the lantern making sessions and on the night at The Guggleton from a marshal with a high vis jacket who will direct you to where you can get your wrist bands.
How will I know where to go? – The route leaves The Guggleton at 5.30pm, Marshalls will help you cross Station Rd and then the parade will go across the car park and through Stalbridge Close. We will re-form in Stalbridge Close and when the A357 is closed will process towards the Ring.
What happens when the parade gets to The Ring? - The Ring, The Cutting and a stretch of Lower Rd adjacent to Anglesey Cottages are safe viewing areas as the roads will been closed to traffic. When we get to the Ring the lantern parade will continue up the A357 and enter The Ring from the lime tree end ready for the Christmas Carols lead by the Churches of Stalbridge and the lighting of the Lime Ring tree.
On arrival at the Ring the lantern parade is over and parents are responsible for the safety of their children.
(Whilst on The Ring please take care near the edges that have a drop and ensure there is no climbing up and down the walls)
After the lighting of the lime tree please ensure you exit The Ring in a safe manner through the lit points only.
PLEASE DO NOT EXIT OVER THE WALL ADJACENT TO LOWER ROAD.
