‘To lead the lantern parade of hundreds of proud, happy young people from Dover was the most incredible experience for me as the Town Mayor this year The drumming gave the event a tribal feel, the whole parade united as a community celebrating the start of the darkest days of the year with noise and light. The big builds swaying along were an artistic triumph for their makers. Thank you to the Future Foundry and all those who took part for giving the town such a fabulous event’. Sue Jones, Maire de Douvres.

Despite -2 degrés, thousands took part in Dover’s Winter Light Up this Saturday, walking with 600 star lanterns made by children and the community through the streets of Dover, following in the footsteps of 11 giant, illuminated wildlife lantern characters made by Future Foundry artists.

Huge thanks to everyone who took part, made lanterns and came to help on the day including our intrepid big build carriers and our AMAZING creative, inventive team who put every once of energy into the day.
