Humphry Davy Birthday Lantern Parade 2017

Penzance Christmas

Things to do in Penzance this Christmas – come and see the Humphry Davy Birthday Lantern Parade!

Humphry Davy Birthday Lantern Penzance
A celebration of Humphry Davy’s Birthday in Penzance – spectacular lanterns


Saturday 16th of December will be a day of celebrations and festivities in Penzance. Not only will there be a great Christmas market in town, but the exciting lantern procession is worth seeing. It will start at the top of Causewayhead at 16:30 and work down through to the Humphry Davy Statue. From there it will come to Chapel Street – and where better to watch the fun than from Blacks of Chapel Street.

Thanks to the closing of Chapel Street to traffic there will be plenty of opportunities to walk and explore what this delightful part of town has to offer. There are some great galleries and shops for Christmas gifts and we are open for mulled wine and hot mince pies. Not only that, we will have some seating outside in Chapel Street where you can grab some great food and watch what is happening.

So come on down to Blacks of Chapel Street and check out our Winter lunchtime menu.
