100 Years of Mile Cross Lantern Procession

Mile Cross Phoenix Childrens Project, 132A Mile Cross Road, Norwich, Norfolk, NR3 2LD

Lantern Procession and Performance celebrating the centenary of the country's first large scale social housing estate.
Made with school, community and company.
We are the Common Lot ...

In the weeks prior to the festival, we will be making lanterns together and rehearsing originally created songs with the school and community in preparation for the event.
We will gather on the green outside the primary school from 1800. We then hope to walk from the old estate to the building site where the new houses will be going up on the old City Works Depot site. There we will hang lanterns and sing to bless the land for the homes that are coming. On the way, we will make a short stop at Sloughbottom Park to acknowledge and sing about the local wildlife.
Simple refreshments and lots of camaraderie are available on the night. See you there!

This event took place in September 2023 and the entry is now archived.
