So glad the magic lantern festival is back this year. Had a great night some really nice street food and bar stalls on the walk round the lanterns which added to this years event. Would definitely recommend to get you into the Christmas spirit.

Was a little sceptical about going to this event but it’s really rather magical. Took two buses from Solihull to the Botanical Gardens and spent a delightful hour enjoying the festival. Highly recommended to get into the spirit of Christmas

Me and my partner visited for the magical lantern festival for the evening. We felt at £14 it was very overpriced even before half of the lights turned off and didn’t come back in for the half an hour we waited before deciding to leave!...More
