We would like as many children and adults as possible to make a lantern and join the Stalbridge Lantern Parade on Friday 1st December, meeting in Stalbridge Close at 5.30pm and processing to The Ring at Stalbridge for the Light Up Stalbridge Celebrations. There are 2 ways to do this...You can make your own Lantern at home, or you can come to one of our FREE Stalbright Lantern Workshops in the Scout Hall, Please note this year we will be asking you to provide your own lights / torches to be fitted into your lanterns. The sessions take place on Sat 18th & Sat 25th November . The Morning sessions run from 10am-12 noon and the Afternoon sessions from 2-4pm.
Its not just for the kids! Artistic adults and those who just think they are a most welcome!
Places are limited to 30 makers per session so booking is essential. You can register to take part in the parade with the lantern you have made at home or book your place at one of the lantern making sessions...just click on the button below to register for the parade or the workshops.
We need everyone to register for 2 reasons... Firstly, so we know how many people are joining the parade, and secondly for Elf and Safety reasons. (if you book a place at one of the making sessions we will automatically register you for the parade) Please note that only lanterns with battery powered lighting can be used at the parade (also for elf and safety reasons!)
and for a bit of inspiration here is a video of last year's lantern parade through the streets of Stalbridge, accompanied by the Sturminster Newton High School Samba Band...
