The Magical Lantern Festival: Review

So! Last night Kieran, Hunter and I went to the Magical Lantern Festival in Kings Heath.

Quick Ratings:

Out of 10: 6

Would we go again: No

Would I recommend going? Yes

It was lovely and a good thing was that we got the tickets for £9 each from Groupon when normally they’re £12 each. Kids under 3 go free! I wouldn’t have paid full price, and now, having actually been I definitely wouldn’t have. LOL was it that bad? No it wasn’t, it was very nice but I’d be lying if I said it had all the impact of it’s name.

When you think about what a Festival is, you expect music, and entertainment I suppose. What it is, is a trail of light up statues? Is that what you would call them? They were very beautiful as you can see from the photographs, but I just feel they didn’t hit the mark on the entertainment factor. I feel that they could have added some magical music and maybe even a smoke machine and some people in costume. Am I asking for too much? I can’t tell haha! I wasn’t disappointed as such, but I did expect a little bit more. I would recommend visiting once!

The Food: They had a few nice food stands, with marshmallows, waffles, hot drinks, hot dogs, burgers and the like, and a Santa’s grotto! There were also a few small fairground rides for small children, which was again very nice but very dark and no music. I think the place was just lacking a bit of Christmas spirit!

It was most definitely something different though and I would recommend going once as the lights are beautiful!

It’s still on till the 1st of January. I would first search for a discount such as the one we found on Groupon before paying full price! There is on site parking for a fee of £3.
