The Twiggles and Boggles are so excited to have the opportunity to put on a brand new Glorious Glowing Lantern Parade. Not only will it follow a soopa spangly new route, through parts of the woodland that the public haven’t had a chance to explore before, but they are also working hard to sprinkle plenty of extra giggle dust and magic on the parade with new lights, sounds and experiences.
See the park in a new light and watch the story unfold as you journey through the woods. A magical adventure for Boggles who are neither brave nor bold! (It’s spooky, not scary!)
The Parade has scheduled time slots and is a separate ticketed event. Tickets need to be booked online but some may be available on the day if space allows.
