The Lantern Company in partnership with Liverpool City Council, are bringing a brand new Spring Festival of Light, Luminous Landscapes, to the Festival Garden site at Otterspool, Liverpool.

The environmentally themed Lantern Festival will take place over 3 evenings, 18th 19th 20th February 2016.

The gardens and woodlands will be transformed into an extraordinary and strange luminous landscape, where what is usually hidden beneath the lake beds and woodland floors creep, crawl and belch up to the surface, to astonish, challenge, delight and even horrify our audiences with their toxic tales from the tip!

The event will be open from 5.30pm till 9pm each night, and audiences will be free to roam the route at their own pace with hand held lanterns, experiencing a world turned upside down, where micro becomes macro, humans change place with the insects and all experience the natural world from unimaginable new perspectives!

Expect an unforgettable and thought-provoking journey and a night that unfolds in astonishing ways, for audiences of all ages.

Community participation takes a central place in the festival and will engage hundreds of local people through community arts workshops, creating lanterns and luminous accessories to become part of the event. The large scale parades of our previous Lantern Carnivals will move aside for this festival, as the audience will become part of the spectacle, lighting their way around the route, with handmade lanterns and other illuminated creatures.

The event is ticketed. Book tickets and workshops via, but be sure to book early, as numbers will be strictly limited.
