Kids urged to make lanterns for Christmas Carnival

CHILDREN are being urged to light up Hucknall’s Christmas Carnival by taking part in a lantern workshop.

The event is at the John Godber Centre on Ogle Street on Saturday (December 2) from 1.30 pm to 4 pm.

Youngsters will create willow-framed lanterns with the help of an expert.

They will then be urged to dress up in festive costume and carry the lanterns as part of the traditional parade that runs from the Aldi store on Portland Road to the Market Place on Carnival night on Wednesday December 7.

The workshop is suitable for kids aged five and above. Booking is required through the John Godber Centre.
