Magical Lantern Festival is an annual event and open during the Xmas period in London and Birmingham. Each year it gets bigger and better! With over 50 lantern scenes, a food and drink market and Santa’s Grotto, it’s the perfect family Xmas night out.
Culture Event Creative worked with their client to produce and launch an all new lantern festival brand which was born in 2015 and first opened at Chiswick House & Gardens in London. We positioned the Magical Lantern Festival as a ‘UK Premier Event’ and as a leading cultural event, celebrating Chinese New Year. An artistic installation of life size and oversized hand crafted lanterns in all shapes and structures from animals to buildings.
Due to its huge success in its debut year, (over 110,000 ticketed visitors), we were asked to develop the concept further and tour it to London, Birmingham and Leeds in year two. For the London Lantern Festival we created a new theme, ‘Explore The Silk Road’. For Birmingham and Leeds we launched them as Xmas themed Lantern Festivals.
For 2018 we are planning to expand again and launch the Magical Lantern Festival in; London, Birmingham and Manchester.
