Help create Barton Christmas Festival’s Lantern Parade

Young people who want to make their own lanterns and take part in the Parade, which takes place this year on Saturday, November 26, will have the opportunity during the half-term holiday next week.

The theme this year is Dinosaurs and Dragons and the workshops, funded by Barton Town Council, are taking place at The Ropewalk every day from October 24 to October 28 from 10am until 3pm.

It will take up to two days to make an individual lantern but if young people, for various reasons, are unable to commit that amount of time there is still the opportunity to be a part of the lantern-making and the Parade itself.

“This year we will be making some larger lanterns for the parade that young people can help to make without the need to commit to two days,” Janine Knight, Project Co-Ordinator for ST-ART said.

Lantern making is suitable for young people aged five years and over and their families but those under the age of eight years must be accompanied by an adult.

The Lantern Parade leaves The Ropewalk at 5pm on Saturday 26th November.
