Workshops have started in 5 local schools to produce the stunning illuminated lanterns that will process Bedminster streets for a truly spectacular event on Saturday 8 December.  There are also public workshops for individuals and community groups at Compass Point School in South Street on Saturdays 6 October and 3 November 10 am - 12, and public workshops at the acta Centre Gladstone Street on Saturdays 13 and 20 October, 3/10/17/20 and 30 November.   Come along if you want to make a lantern or join a group making one.    Look out for the next public meeting for volunteers helping with the event itself - marshalling, serving food, etc.  The Parade itself will be leaving Palmerston Street at 4.30 pm, and will return to Compass Point Playing Field/South Street Park for food and entertainment - plus, weather permitting, the first ever Bedminster Winter Balloon Glow.  If you want to get involved - or just keep up to date, but can't make any of the sessions above  - contact  This email address is being protected from spambots.
