image of a crowd of santa clausKits are £5.00 each (plus 50p booking fee) and will include everything you need to make a Father Christmas-themed lantern plus a bamboo cane. You will need to provide your own battery powered fairy lights or torch - there won't be any candles allowed this year for safety reasons.

We will be selling rolls of good quality masking tape at the kit collection sessions for £1.00 per roll (cost price) - please bring the correct money so you can throw it in the bucket and help yourself.

There won't be a Lantern Procession this year, lantern-makers will make their own way to the Market Square in time for the Switch-On celebrations and carol singing on Saturday 27 November 2021 (timings tbc). If you don't feel comfortable being with others, you can light your lantern and put it in your window or front garden for everyone to see instead.

Each ticket entitles you to 1 Lantern Kit which will need to be collected from York House Centre on one of the dates below.


York House Centre car park:
Sunday 31 October: 10am til 12 Noon
Monday 01 November: 6.00pm - 8.00pm
Saturday 06 November: 10am til 12 Noon

Please DO NOT turn up at York House outside of these days/hours or try and contact the York House Office as it is not open to the public at the moment and all project administration is being done by the Lantern Volunteers this year.
