Winter Lanterns at home -We are still lighting up the town!

Due to the pandemic, the team at CREATE will not be able to run the Winter Lantern Parade in the same way as we normally would. This year we’re going to light up your homes instead, so help us to share some light during lockdown.

The CREATE team want to help you share your creative displays with our community in a covid-19 safe way, allowing people to view the winter lanterns as they take their daily exercise within their households or bubbles or via sharing their photos on social media.

Using the themes set out below, we want you to think creatively and use your front gardens, cars, houses, windows, even the garden gate(!) to create a fabulous light display within the 2021 theme of Heroes and Villains!

1-7 February                      Heroes

8-14 February                    Villains

15-21 February                 Origin Stories

22-28 February                 The Final Showdown

We will be supporting you with ideas, demos and examples via our online workshops to be held on Saturday 16 January – please book via
