HUNDREDS of people lined the streets of Newbury town centre for the festive lantern parade 2011. Over 300 children created their own beautiful lanterns in a workshop the day before only to take to the streets for a procession through the town into the market square.
"Then came the finale - the details of which the Corn Exchange had kept under their hats.
People looked on in awe as a giant spherical lantern floated into the night sky with a Christmas fairy hanging below. She performed an aerial acrobatic display to music as the sphere glowed the colours of the rainbow and floated above the square. " - Newbury Weekly
