Get creative with our lantern toolkit and light up our community this November.
This November, Gainsborough’s annual Illuminate event commemorating the town’s links to the Mayflower Pilgrims’ story will be a bit different, like so many other things that have changed recently. For the past three years, a fantastic parade of lanterns has taken place in town but sadly, it will not possible this year. Instead, we are inviting you to get creative at home using our specially designed toolkit full of templates, ideas and inspiration for making your own lantern.
Display your lit lantern in a window at home on the evening of Thursday 26 November (the date of Thanksgiving), and share a photo on social media tagging in #OneSmallCandle to be part of the commemorations and to join others across our region connected by a shared heritage.
