Lantern Making Workshops

This winter season the Heligan team looks forward to welcoming our visitors to join a magical lantern procession as you step into Heligan Night Garden. Experience the enchanting garden at night and navigate the pathways by the warm glow of your own decorated lantern and watch the mesmerising flames and reflections on the magical Night Garden path.

To make your very own lantern to guide your family around our enchanting evening, pre-booking is essential. Visit http://www.heligan.com to book in advance. This is an activity for children only and we ask they are each accompanied by an adult. One ticket per child is required.

£5 per child ticket (adults free of charge when accompanying a child), with all materials supplied.

The workshops run every half an hour from 4pm-6pm throughout the Heligan Night Garden. A valid Night Garden entry ticket must be purchased separately to enable you access to the evening experience. We advise attending 30 minutes before your Heligan Night Garden ticket entry time, to give you ample time to create your lantern.

Our festive team will be on hand to guide you through the process of decorating and assembling your hand-held lantern, before leading you out to enjoy the evening event.

Please note that there are no naked flames, and this experience is suitable for children from the age of 2 and above.

Please look for the directions to the Lantern making workshops when you arrive at Heligan, which will take place in our outside eatery beside The Heligan Kitchen.
