FREE lantern-making workshops are being held from next week, as the town prepares for its festive celebrations.
In preparation for this year’s lantern procession, held as a curtain-raiser for Late Night Shopping, two lantern-making workshops are taking place with the support of Ashbourne Town Council.
The events are due to be held at Ashbourne Town Hall on Saturday, October 12 and 19, to run from 10am until 4pm and each is self- contained.
The workshops, which can be rolled out to schools if requested, have been organised by Ashbourne Churches Together and will use experienced lantern-making tuition provided by Ashbourne Festival.
Places, which are for adults and accompanied children in school year three and above, are limited so booking is essential.
To find out more call Jacqui Marsh on 01335 345210.
The procession is due to take place on Friday, December 6.
