4 February @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
The Lantern Festival for 2023 will be held on Saturday 4 February in the Beijing Garden, on the lake. This is our major event for the year and has proved very popular.
Help with setting up and lantern sales
We will be needing help with the setting up of the park for the festival. There are lanterns and lights to hang, tables to set up, lanterns to be prepared. We will begin at about 1.00pm with a view to having everything done by 5.30 or so.
There is also a great need for help with sales of lanterns. Tasks include handing out lanterns with LED lights and sticks, and taking payments. There is always a huge rush just before the lantern parade begins, so at least six people would be good. The more we have the more we can organise shifts so some volunteers can see some of the performances.
