A few words about us



Our Winter Festival and extensive workshop programme provides a multitude of arts opportunities every year. These range from local schools kids designing and making  lanterns for the event, local artists constructing giant lanterns and mentoring young locals and community exposure to artistic endeavours through poetry workshops and music.

The opening night 'lantern lit concert' is friday night.  The festival day and parade ( saturday) takes place from the late afternoon to the evening and culminates in a lantern procession and a fire mural lighting up the night sky.
