The Lantern Tour in Rugby’s Laurel Dale Cemetery allows you to meet 9 or 10 former Rugby residents who tell their stories, all true. The accounts come from letters, diaries and other materials in the Historic Rugby Archives.

The Lantern Tour marks its 12th year in 2021. Attendance is always limited on account of the setting on sacred ground.  (The characters change a bit from year to year, so even if you’ve attended the event previously you’re likely to see something new.)

Brought to you courtesy of Historic Rugby, which as a nonprofit struggling in the Covid aftermath (hopefully gone by September). DETAILS WILL BE POSTED HERE WHEN AVAILABLE.
