There’s great excitement that the Trowbridge Lantern Festival is returning this November and even more so that the construction of lanterns has already begun! This year’s theme is ‘The Environment’ and the town is looking forward to all of the wonderful creations being paraded through Trowbridge on Saturday November 27th. Workshops will be running in local schools again, as well as the Town Hall and also Trowbridge Information Centre. Local artist Jennie Quigley will be hosting a series of lantern-making workshops in preparation for the big day.

Trowbridge Information Centre workshops will take place on
