Halloween Lantern Carnival – Sefton Park, Tuesday

Hope that didn’t scare you too much!

The spectacular Halloween Lantern Carnival, now an event run annually by Liverpool Lantern Company and partners will take place on Tuesday 31st October 2006 in Sefton Park.

The event will commence at 18.00 with pre-parade performances and sideshows.These will be situated beyond the café towards the lake.

The procession begins at 18.30 from the Obelisk.This year’s theme of “The Displaced” views the ideas from both a satirical vantage point to poetic and poignant observations about the displaced inhabitants of Liverpool’s many buildings and communities which have been or are currently being demolished.

The event will feature kinetic sculptures, visual installations, spoken word,music and sound, dance, theatre, puppetry and hundreds of community made lanterns as part of the procession.

The event will culminate in a stunning finale creating a celestial city of light with six angelic beings and a sixty strong group of live drummers, fire sculptures and pyrotechnics.A large team of both local and national artists has engaged with colleges, schools and community groups to collaboratively deliver this project.
