Magical Lantern Festival Birmingham is back for its third year and it’s bigger better and so much more impressive than last year! The festival returns to its original home of the beautiful grounds of Birmingham Botanical Gardens with all new lanterns for 2018.
This year’s Christmas themed Lantern Festival will illuminate the grounds turning it into a spectacular fusion of dual culture, vibrant colours and artistic sculptures! Prepare to enter a magical experience and discover life-size and larger-than-life lanterns in all shapes and forms from a ginger bread house and panda's to giant xmas trees and penguins! Visitors will see some of the most impressive and artistic lantern installations outside of China, designed to celebrate Christmas and Chinese culture and heritage.
The festival will not only wow visitors with its beautiful hand-sculpted lanterns installed across the paths and greenery. Along the route visitors will find a range of street food and drink, merchandise marquee and Santa's Grotto (extra cost). There is no better family-friendly festival to visit this Christmas!
