Hallowe’en lantern-making … to light up the Children’s Wood

By on October 22, 2014

The countdown to Hallowe’een in the Children’s Wood at North Kelvin Meadow starts on Sunday (Oct 26) with a special craft event.

At the Kelbourne Scout Hall, from 12-4pm, there will be lantern making – as preparation for the Halloween parade the following Friday – plus spooky crafts and yarnbombing with Knit Wild, facepainting and the Children’s Wood café.

For Halloween night on the meadow (Friday, Oct 26), gather at 4pm for the lantern parade, with reading from the Room on the Broom with actress Joyce Falconer, at 4.30pm, and shadow puppet shows with Anna Lehr at 5pm and 5.30pm. Finally, at 6pm, it will be Room on the Broom in Scots with actor Tam Dean Burn and actress Joyce Falconer.

As the meadow will be dark for some of this event, organisers hope you will bring along a lantern and/or torch – and for those with children under the age of five, one adult to one child.
