Garden of Light
Saturday 15 November 2014, 4pm-8pm
Fred Roche Gardens, Milton Keynes
We will be illuminating Fred Roche Gardens in Milton Keynes City Centre on Saturday 15 November 2014, 4pm-8pm for their Garden of Light extravaganza!
Milton Keynes based artist and performer, Random Mike, will be entertaining the crowds with stilt walking, UV balloon modelling, as well as spectacular glow and fire poi performances! Amongst the beautifully lit up gardens there will be music by MKFM and African drumming group Moribayassa, refreshments, UV face painting, light installations and much more! An evening not to be missed!
Come along and get your face painted with UV paints then have a little dance in our UV marquee to show off the beautiful colours and patterns. Ever wanted to have a go at light photography?! Well now is your chance to come and create a wonderful photo using lasers, glow sticks and other spectacular lighting.
In the lead up to the event, we will be working with pupils from local schools and community groups to make lanterns for a lantern parade. The parade will meet at The Hub at 4pm, walking along the parade route to Fred Roche Gardens where there will be glow and fire performances, music and interactive workshops until 8pm.
The Fred Roche Gardens is located between Silbury Boulevard and Midsummer Boulevard, stretching from the rear of the Church of Christ the Cornerstone down to Upper Fifth Street.
We are looking for some wonderful festival volunteers to help out at the event, with everything from hanging decorations to marshalling the lantern parade. If you are interested in getting involved please email Amy Hill on firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 01908 678514.
We are also inviting people along to Inter-Action MK for a Volunteer Afternoon Creative Session on Wednesday 5 November 2014, 1pm-4pm, for the chance to get creative and make lanterns and decorations for the event.
