The free Festival of Lights returns for two days at Caldmore Community Garden on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th November 2022. The festival provides a free celebration of diverse cultural and artistic traditions and brings people together across cultures to enjoy arts and creativity for all ages.

Caldmore Community Garden will be illuminated to create a place where diverse traditions of Diwali, Bonfire Night, and All Soul’s Eve meet to light up the night and open the doors to all the community.

Saturday 5th November will see a performance of ‘Animal Magic’ from Peter Chand and Fox & Rocha at 6:00pm. Join Storyteller Peter Chand and musical maestros Fox & Rocha for a family session of stories and songs from around the world. You will encounter fantastic tales of elephants with small noses, preening peacocks and misbehaving crows. A toe-tapping interactive and lively evening awaits you as this delightful trio returns to Caldmore Community Garden.

On Sunday 6th November the joyous and beautiful Lantern Procession will start off the evening at 5:45p.m.  The procession, led by fiddle player Adrian Ward, will walk from the Community Garden to Caldmore Green.  Pick up a lantern created by the school children from Caldmore Primary Academy, toddlers and families from Caldmore Tots group and the community of Caldmore. Alternatively, bring your own torches and join in the fun.  We will light up the streets of Caldmore and invite everyone to accompany us on our way back to the Garden.

Return to the Garden for an incredible free, fire performance, at 7pm by Helter Skelter Arts that will light up the Garden with their flames and daring stunts! A great show for all the family. (Keep an eye out for the duo around the Garden as well, as they paint patterns and images in the air with their amazing LED props)!
