The Candlelit Dartmouth lantern procession is happening on Saturday 25th November.
This year, we're once again organising a number of community-based workshops so that children of all ages, families and friends who want to join the Candlelit Dartmouth procession all have the opportunity to make and carry their own lantern.
Dates and locations for the workshops will be available here in due course.
All workshops run from 10am - 4pm and are open to all - but please note that all children under 9 must be accompanied by an adult. Just turn up at any time but please allow 2-3 hours to complete your lantern. All materials will be provided. However, you may find it useful to bring along your own secateurs. All lanterns must be taken away by 4pm - we have no facility to store lanterns at any of the workshops - not even overnight.
There is a charge of £5 per lantern to cover materials . The majority of lantern-makers that we've canvassed reckon this is a small price to pay for several hours of workshop activity and to have a lantern to take home at the end of the day. It certainly helps our task of fundraising for the Candlelit Dartmouth weekend.
The Candlelit Dartmouth team would like to thank the custodians of each of the workshop venues for generously waiving hire fees to enable us to offer these affordable workshops to the local communities.
