Light up the Pleasure Grounds – Meltham

October 27 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Lantern festival

This event is hosted by Meltham Walkers are Welcome and The Friends of Meltham Pleasure Grounds.

Anyone or any school or group in the area is welcome to join in the event.

The event is free and the rules are simple - make lights and lanterns from waste, recycled, up-cycled materials, let your imagination run riot. There is no theme, but
if you’re stuck for ideas, how about Hallowe’en, animals, under the sea, butterflies, bees, fairies, colours of the rainbow, transport or outer space!

Then, provide light by LED lights, outdoor battery lights, or solar lights (make sure they’re fully charged!) NO NAKED FLAMES PERMITTED. There is no mains electricity available. You can provide your own LED tea lights, or buy them from us on the day providing you let us know in advance.

Arrive on the day to set your lanterns up at the Meltham Mills end of the Pleasure Grounds between 10-2pm. There is on-road parking available in the area, please show consideration to residents. We aim to have all the lanterns in place throughout the Pleasure Grounds by dusk, then we can walk through our magical setting.

There will also be refreshments for sale and there will be a dance and light display from the Lauren Faye Dance School.
