We are so pleased that Lister Park lantern parade went so well again in October 2023.

Thousands of you joined us for a spectacular evening of community, lights and spectacle. 

Here is some of your lovely feedback on the event.

“It was just fantastic. I loved seeing so many groups and schools you’d engaged with, and just such a massive turn out! It’s the most genuinely multi cultural, welcoming event we have in Bradford and it makes my heart sing every year. Massive congratulations”

“How amazing, you’re certainly putting Bradford on the map”

“The annual Lister Park Lantern Parade, an event that grows bigger and better year on year.”


We actively encouraged car free travel to our event in 2023. Everyone who had not travelled by car had the opportunity to be entered into a prize draw to win an original artwork by Bradford artist Ruth Fettis.

We are pleased to have received funding from the Arts Council, Bradford Council, Sovereign Healthcare and The Leap to support this event.
