Stony Stratford Lantern Project 2021
Date: 01 Oct 2021 - 27 Nov 2021
FINALLY we can update you all on what's happening with the Stony Stratford Lantern Project this year - Santa Claus is Coming to Town!
In an effort to keep everyone as safe as possible, we will be selling a limited number of 'make at home' lantern kits including all the materials and instructions you need to make a Father Christmas themed lantern. Kits are £5 each and will include a bamboo cane but you will need to provide your own battery powered fairy lights or torch - there won't be any candles allowed for safety reasons.
To avoid large crowds amassing, 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. 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.
Tickets will go on sale from Friday 01 October, the on-line link will be shared from the Stony Stratford Lantern Project Facebook Group, along with dates and times for the kit collection sessions at York House Centre.
We hope you all understand the need for this 'hybrid' approach to the 2021 project, and we've got everything crossed that we'll be back together at York House for the normal workshops in 2022!
