Tide Of Light Parade 2019

Worthing’s award winning Lantern Parade survived a Gale in 2019!  


When normal conditions allow, we are a walking, twinkling, line of lanterns, winding our way along our much beloved seafront. Residents join the parade in groups, as families or as individuals. There are so many ways to get involved  

Every year we work in schools to make lanterns ahead of the parade. On the night we also host making workshops in the Pavilion Theatre so that children and adults can come and make their handheld lanterns.  

In 2019 we also worked with community groups to make large illuminated lanterns in our project The Big Make

In 2020 we were  sadly forced to take a break due to COVID-19

We are now reviewing our plans for the future.
