Something special will light Coleford this year on Friday 5th December when a feast of lanterns made by local people of all ages will process around the town to herald the season and the illumination of the town’s christmas tree. Workshop sessions to design and make lanterns on the theme of Stars and Angels will be taking place in schools, the library and the town centre. You are invited to come to sessions on saturday 29th at 11am and tuesday 5th at 5pm in the library to make your own.
