‘Magical Lantern Festival’, is an annual event and open during the Xmas period in Birmingham and Leeds and during the Chinese New Year period in London. Each year the festival 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.

Event Nation worked with its client, Weli Creative Ltd, to produce and launch this all new lantern festival brand in 2015 and first opened at Chiswick House & Gardens in London. We positioned the Magical Lantern Festival as a ‘UK Premier Event’ and a leading cultural event, celebrating Chinese New Year. This dazzling artistic show consists of beautiful installations of life-size and oversized hand crafted lanterns in all shapes and sizes 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 2016, 2017 & 2018. Look out for the Magical Lantern Festival in a city near you in the future!


We’d love to hear all about your event and get started on bringing it to life
