Hundreds of people joined in Salisbury's lantern and lights procession starting at Salisbury Cathedral.
The streets of Salisbury were illuminated at the eighth procession on Thursday as part of the city's Christmas celebrations.
The Cathedral's Dean, Reverend Canon Nicholas Charles Papadopulos and the Mayor of Salisbury John Walsh led the procession with the Dolphin Marching Band, who performed some festive music.
The historic and impressive architecture of Salisbury Cathedral provided a dramatic backdrop for the lanterns illuminated in the dark, from dinosaurs to stars and astronauts.

A Monthly Gift Of £8 Makes A World Of Difference
In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.
Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the UK is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.
For a monthly gift of £8 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.
Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
