Illuminate, Austerfield

With its spectacular parade of lanterns, music and entertainment, Illuminate Austerfield looks set to be a magical event for all the family on Sunday 19th November.

The event will start with a candle lighting service at St. Helena's Church in Austerfield at 16:00, followed by a lantern parade along Bawtry High Street at 17:00. The parade will feature Mr and Mrs Mayflower and lead to St. Nicholas' Church.

Entertainment will be provided by the Phoenix Theatre and the Quirky Choir at a Civic Service in St. Nicholas' Church, Bawtry at 17:30.

At 19:00 everyone will be invited to create an Austerfield, Doncaster 400 Illuminate image!


The event recognises Doncaster’s important connections to the story of the Mayflower Pilgrims, some of whom came from the area before they sailed to America in 1620.

Austerfield Illuminate forms part of the Pilgrim Roots Illuminate series - other Illuminate events will take place in the nearby towns of Gainsborough, Retford and Boston.
