Lantern-making workshops

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 and, this year, all workshops are FREE!

Dates and locations for the workshops are:

Saturday 14th October - St. Clements church
Saturday 11th November - Dartmouth Academy
Sunday 12th November - Dartmouth Academy
Saturday 18th November - Blackawton village hall

All workshops run from 10am - 4pm and you can book places in advance by emailing:

Workshops 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.

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 free workshops to the local communities.
