About This Event

Light up Eye is a free to attend, family oriented Lantern Parade

Eye Lantern Parade will bring the local community together to celebrate the village, people and winter traditions of the area. Light Up Eye is the inspiration of performance company La Septima UK. It is inspired by Christmas light displays and the history of the village, residents will parade through the village with beautiful handmade lanterns – creating some winter cheer in the darker times of the year. 

Parade details: 6:30pm – 8pm.
Starts: Manor Farm Community Centre.
Ends: St Matthews Church.
Tickets for the parade are sold out. You are still able to watch the parade as it passes through the High Street. Click here to find out more.

Eye High Street will be closed to traffic during the parade. Following the parade residents will be able to see the lanterns on display at St Matthew’s Church, Eye.

Groups from across the village have been working with La Septima to make paper lanterns & create performances. Groups incl: Eye W.I., Eye Primary School, Eye Youth Group, Eye Rainbows, Brownies and Guides, residents at The Spinney, Froglife, EAPS, Eye Runners and lots of individual residents. Together, we’ve made over 150 lanterns!

Join in the fun and decorate your houses
If you are one of the houses on the parade route, we would love it if you wanted to light up or decorate your home. You can use Christmas lights (static and not flashing lights if possible) or use tissue paper to make patterns or scenes on your windows.
