A FUN family Christmas parade will return to Worcester tonight.

People of all ages will walk from Worcester's Cathedral Square to The Hive for a Lantern Parade.

This year's event will see festive music in the square from Severn Arts Wind Ensembles along with live Christmas music from Rock Choir at the Hive.

The annual event has grown in popularity since it first began in December 2012.

Janine Downes, library manager at The Hive, said: “The parade is a fantastic family event and really gets everyone in the mood for Christmas.

"It’s great to see all of the children with their decorated lanterns enjoying the music and the lights as we walk through the City to The Hive.”

A free willow wreath making craft activity from 11am to 3pm for children aged six to 12 years will also take place at the Hive this Saturday.
