Lantern procession

 

The lantern parade is the climax of the event, taking place on Saturday evening. It is a beautiful and atmospheric sight around the old streets of the town, with children and families parading their lanterns and musicians and entertainers adding to the spectacle.

 

 

The route will be confirmed nearer the time but this year at the end of the parade everyone will be encouraged to take their lanterns to St Savour's Church and leave them there.

On Sunday at 11.00am there will be a family commemoration/celebration of Mayflower 400 in the Church with the lanterns and Mayflower pennants being the focus of decoration. The focus will be on the  Mayflower   story. Music will be provided by an augmented Parish Choir, directed by Christopher Helyer, who will sing the  Dartmouth Mayflower Anthem , amongst other pieces.
