Dec 5th Angels and Stars Light the Town and Coleford Shines
The Coleford Lantern Festival took to the streets and flooded the town with stars and angels the fruits of several days of making in local schools, the library and at home. It was an experience that brought a common joy to the hundreds of people of all ages who came along…
Mayor Paul Kay talked about the challenge of putting the event on this year with 6 weeks notice but asked everyone to share the achievement of what had been created by Coleford Town Council and local support. From decorated shop windows, Live music, the Christmas Market and the artists working with the children to create the lanterns, all building toward keeping the Town alive.
