Elephant on Parade – The Festival of Light

Published 19 December 2023

The annual Festival of Light has become something of a spectacular Christmas tradition in Newbury. Many of you will have been there on Sunday to see the amazing procession of hundreds of twinkling lanterns travelling through Newbury town centre. In the build up to the event, many schools, community groups and members of the public were busy constructing some amazing structures to parade and, as you would expect, St Bart’s was no exception!

We absolutely LOVE this amazing elephant created in St Bart’s Art Club by talented Year 9 students, Phoebe, Ffion and Gamya. We hope they enjoyed the procession and we thank them for sharing this great image.
