The Ulverston Lantern Festival features the fantastic spectacle of hundreds of lanterns parading through the town. The annual event is part of the Ulverston Charter Festival and each year there is a new theme with 2017's being 'Outer Space'. Four separate parades will converge on County Square from different areas of the town, arriving between 8:25pm and 8:35pm with a total of 600 lanterns expected. This year's event will culminate with a huge street party in the town centre instead of the usual Ford Park. The finale will be at around 8:45pm and will include fireworks and live music.

A number of Lantern Making Workshops will take place prior to the event. Kits to make lanterns at home will be available from the Ulverston Information Centre, Laurel & Hardy Museum, Book Shack in Market Hall, Boogle and Bumps, Appleseeds and Costa Coffee.
