In keeping with current guidelines, you must attend the workshop session that your ticket specifies.


All lanterns created at these workshops will be submitted to the closing event of BLOOM the 'Lantern Parade'. If you would like to walk in the parade with the lantern you made, and take it home with you afterwards then you will need to register it during the workshop AND register to attend the 'Lantern Parade' on Friday 30 October. Unfortunately, if you do not collect your lantern on the night we cannot guarantee it will be available for you to collect post-event.
