Come down and create your very own lantern ahead of the 2022 Pontefract Lantern Parade.

All lanterns are made from tissue paper and eco-friendly willow, are designed to be carried and are battery operated – perfect for little ones!

All materials are provided free of charge but donations are welcome.
