The Lantern Festival organising committee is appealing for ‘crafty’ volunteers to help make the event a huge success by helping to run lantern-making sessions. We’re also seeking more volunteers to act as marshals for the procession on 16th September. No previous experience in lantern making is required – people just need to be willing to learn from Ulverston’s home-grown experts and to give up a little of their time at evenings and weekends to assist at the sessions teaching people how to make lanterns.

If you would like to volunteer at the Ulverston Lantern Festival or at our lantern-making workshops please call us on 07761 930627.
