Your chance to be bright sparks for the Jane Tomlinson Appeal

Festival visitors are being offered the chance to grab an exclusive preview of one of the most-talked about events of the year - and support the Jane Tomlinson Appeal at the same time.

The UK's biggest Chinese lantern festival comes to Yorkshire for the first time this month and is set to attract tens of thousands of guests eager to get a glimpse of this incredible spectacle.

The Magical Lantern Festival event runs from November 25 to January 2nd at Roundhay Park in Leeds.

But for one night only, 500 people can attend an exclusive preview event on Thursday November 24th - with their ticket proceeds going directly to the Jane Tomlinson Appeal, the legacy of the late inspirational amateur fundraiser and athlete.

Tickets for the preview night on Thursday 24th November are available now, priced at just £10, with a £1 booking fee. These tickets are strictly limited with just 500 available.

The Jane Tomlinson Appeal is fortunate enough to have been chosen as the official partner charity of the Magical Lantern Festival, which will see stunning dragons the length of three buses and over 40,000 bulbs light up Roundhay Park over the festive season.

The festival centres round a winding, dramatically lit lantern trail, with displays featuring lanterns as wide as 20m. There will also be a separate entertainment area and food village, which is free to enter, with a paid-for outdoor ice rink, Santa's Grotto, mini fun fair and virtual reality experience.
