Come along with a lantern to enjoy a sunset guided walk, when the sun has set their will be a lantern lit procession down the Meridian Line of River Lee Country Park in the dark between the two Meridian Sculptures.

If you would rather meet us at the northern Meridian Sculpture, we will get there just after sunset (approximately 9:20pm).

Please bring along own paper or jar lantern. Remember children under 8 years old are not permitted to carry a flame based lantern (glow sticks are fine) and all children MUST be supervised by an adult.

If you cannot make the Lantern Making Workshop on Sat 25th April don't worry Lee Valley Park have produced a paper lantern and jar lantern design.  Please click to download the design sheets to make one at home!

Unfortunately, just heard that the Lee Valley Park Lantern Making Workshop due to take place on Sat 25th April has been cancelled due to not enough people booking. What a shame!
