Handmade Parade Lantern Workshops and Parade

Renowned local artists Handmade Parade, from Hebden Bridge, will be joining TakeOver Festival 2017 for a very special lantern parade through the famous Museum Gardens, York on Saturday 28 October. All day on Thursday 26 and Friday 27 Handmade Parade will be providing lantern making workshops for people of all ages and abilities. It is completely free and the results are truly stunning! Be part of something truly magical and try your hand at creating bespoke lanterns of anything from fish and dinosaurs to traditional Chinese lanterns.


Join TakeOver on our grand finale parade through York's beautiful Museum Gardens at 5pm on Saturday 28 October. Collect your stunning, handmade lanterns from York Theatre Royal and meet us at Museum Gardens for a breathtaking promenade through the famous gardens. 

Why not stay around for foyer activities and our Saturday night shows and make it a festival finale not to forget? 

This event is free and you do not need to have made a lantern to join us. Everyone is welcome, children must be accompanied by an adult.
