WATCH: Hundreds enjoy spectacular Christmas lantern parade through Alnwick

An amazing lantern parade led by light and drums group Spark! wound its way through Alnwick yesterday (Saturday), to the delight of hundreds who lined the route.

With dynamic rhythms, spectacular lights and vibrant movements, the group made its way from the Garden to the Market Place, via the Bondgate Tower, accompanied by Father Christmas in a white horse-drawn carriage.
