Jack on the Green – A touch of magic on a stormy night
Around 3000 visitors attended the first ever, pop up lantern trail in Beach House Park over the weekend, despite the extreme weather.
Over 170 members of the public became crafters for the day, attending workshops organised by Same Sky community arts charity. Together they made dozens of paper lanterns that went on to form a trail across the park later that evening.
Coloured lanterns were lit from the inside and as you can see from the pictures, the results were stunning. Those following the trail were treated to an octopus garden, lanterns in the shape of Nautilus, jellyfish of all shapes and sizes, and – to mark Diwali – the Hindu god Ganesh.
Visitors to this free event described it as ‘magical’ adding a little bit of cheer to a stormy night. Same Sky really rose to the occasion in difficult conditions and wowed the people of Worthing.
