Magic Lantern Workshops

Come along and make your very own lantern during half-term on Sunday 27th or Monday 28th October from 10am to 4pm at Daventry Scouts Hall, Daventry Country Park to get crafty and create your very own magic lantern. Workshops are free but booking is required - entry form to be released nearer the event.

Lantern workshops last approximately two hours. Please note that children must be supervised by a responsible adult at all times.


The Magic Lantern Workshops are always lots of fun - for all ages! We are always amazed at everyone's creations and no 2 are ever the same. From Angels to Christmas Trees, from Pokémon's to Gruffalo's. The only limit is your imagination!

Everyone then brings their lantern along to our annual parade around the town led by the amazing marching band - Liberty Drum - ending up at The Holy Cross Church for a family carol service.

Here are some pictures from last years workshop and lantern parade.
