Lantern Parade for Octagon Theatre's 40th anniversary

Two workshops for children and families to build lanterns for the lantern parade to celebrate the opening night of A Christmas Carol.

I also built a backpack lantern; a giant hand holding a lantern high above the others with coloured cut outs of the ghosts of Christmas Past, Future and Present.

The lantern parade began outside the Octagon Theatre, and took a short tour of the town centre, lighting up the streets with our eye-catching lanterns.
