Stony Stratford Lockdown Lantern Project

The wait is finally over...the theme for this year's 'Stony Stratford Lockdown Lantern Project' is Christmas at Home!

Due to Covid-19 restrictions there will be no Switch-On Day this year, so we are teaming up with the Stony Community Advent Calendar project to bring your family a special artistic opportunity. 

We will be selling lantern kits (on-line sales only) for you to create a lantern or a window scene to decorate your front window – you could even do both!  The streets of Stony Stratford, Galley Hill and Fullers Slade will be allocated a number to represent each day of Advent, but this year we will be asking you to have all your lanterns and window displays lit up from 1st December for everyone to enjoy throughout the festive month. 

Lantern Leaflet have been put through your door at the beginning of October. Inside you’ll find an outline of the project and how your family can join in. Lantern Kits will be available to buy on-line from Monday 12 October.  There will be 2 sessions for you to collect your kit/s from York House on 14 & 15 November.  More details and further updates can be found on the Stony Stratford Lantern Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/161331770478/

We’re getting excited now! Let's bring some Christmas cheer after a difficult year.

Kit collection (for pre-ordered kits only) will be from York House Centre on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 November, 2pm til 5pm. We would appreciate if only one person per family could come along to collect (although we know that’s not always possible). You will need to wear a face covering and there will be a socially distanced queuing system – please bring appropriate outdoor clothing/umbrella if the weather is not good.
