Darnall to host annual lantern parade

Darnall is to host its second annual lantern parade this Friday.

The event, which is open to all, starts outside High Hazels Academy at 3:30pm, Friday 4 November.

There will be a range of entertainment, including performances by the Darnall Community choir, as well as a samba band and fire jugglers.

Councillor Jack Scott, cabinet member for community services and libraries at Sheffield City Council, said: “This year’s event looks set to be a good one and I’d like to thank all the local schools, groups and people for their hard work to help organise it. I hope to see everyone there.”

Several lantern making workshops have been held over the past few weeks.

Last year saw some 500 people join the parade, with homemade lanterns which included a five-foot tall Beluga whale.

Inspector Chris Lewis from the Local Policing Team said: “This promises to be a great evening with fun for all the family and we’re looking forward to seeing everyone having a good time.”
