Make your own lantern for Illuminate 2020
People in the towns and villages linked to the Mayflower story are being invited to get creative with our lantern toolkit and light up communities this November. People living in the towns and villages that make up the region where many of the prominent figures in the Mayflower story came from are being invited to take part in a mass lantern-making event to mark Thanksgiving.
This November, the Pilgrim Roots’ region’s annual Illuminate events commemorating local links to the Mayflower Pilgrims’ story will be a bit different, like so many other things that have changed recently.
For the past few years, fantastic parades of lanterns have taken place in Boston, Gainsborough, Retford and Worksop, but sadly, it will not possible this year.
Instead, people are being invited to get creative at home using a specially designed toolkit full of templates, ideas and inspiration for making your own lantern.
