Ulverston Lantern Festival

Ulverston’s favourite fiery festival takes place mid September each year in Ulverston.


The Lantern Festival is an annual community event featuring a spectacular lantern procession through the streets of Ulverston. For 2020 the event will be held virtually.

There is a new theme chosen each year and people are encouraged to make lanterns built with this theme in mind. The theme for 2020 is ‘Birds and Bugs’.

Virtual Event 2020

The Ulverston Lantern Festival will take place as a virtual event this year due to Covid-19 safety concerns. Festival organisers are asking lantern makers to buy kits and make their lanterns at home, then display them outside during the event weekend.
