Join us for this year’s We are Wednesbury Winter Lantern Procession on Saturday 25 November at 5pm, alongside Sandwell Council’s Wednesbury Christmas Light Switch On event, 1pm-6pm (light switch on taking place at 5.45pm).
We are delighted to announce that the Procession will be lighting up and parading through the town with lanterns designed by local, talented artists Sam Hale, Karl Lewis and Ruby Lewis and wonderful community groups from across Wednesbury. Over a series of lantern-making workshops, the artists have been meeting with the groups to design and make their own lanterns, responding to ideas of nature and the natural world.
All are welcome to join us at the Lantern Procession; expect to see the highstreet animated by beautiful representations of illuminated plants and wildlife. More details to follow.
This project has been generously funded by Historic England’s Know Your Neighbourhood fund, Arts Council England and Sandwell Council.
