Come and join us in one of our free lantern making workshops which are being organised in the run up to the main event on the 5th March. Lanterns will be made with a mix of traditional and modern materials, all of which will be provided free of charge. The lanterns can be used by you during the procession that will take place on the 5th March and may even feature in the grand finale light and sound show!
The workshops are suitable for all ages and abilities, lots of help will be available if needed!
Please ensure you register soon, as there are limited spaces.
