Moat Brae becomes lantern making hub for BBS

moatbrae, January 11, 2016

The Big Burns Supper team will hold a special Lantern Making Workshop Hub event at Moat Brae on Saturday 16th January from 11am – 3pm.  Join them and help create a Peter Pan -themed section to the biggest street event of its kind in Scotland.

The aim is for 4,500 lanterns to parade throughout Dumfries at the big Carnival on Sunday 24th January from 5pm when over 10,000 people are expected to gather in the town to celebrate the other great literary figure to be  inspired by his time in Dumfries!

All you need to bring is warm clothes (the house doesn’t have much heating) and plenty of enthusiasm.  The BBS team will provide all the materials as well as ideas and they will show you how to make your lantern.


WORKSHOP: Sat 16th Jan 11am – 3pm

PARADE/CARNIVAL: Sun 24th Jan at 5pm
