Lantern Parade

Create and bring along your own lantern and light up the darkening park, in a lantern parade led by the drumming workshop! 

Wassail Ceremony

Drive all evil spirits away from the Community Orchard, and sing songs of celebration to the oldest apple tree in the park! 
This event is free to attend, but not all workshops are free of charge.
Many of the lanterns will be made in school workshops before the event, but anyone can make a lantern at home and bring it along, just make sure you are using electric LED lights in lantern.

This event has been organised by Yeovil Country Park ranger team, Yeovil Art Space, and Love Yeovil.
