Luminate Lantern & Light Festival

We have a lovely evening for our Luminate Festival in early November around the Derby Arboretum.
Around 150 people came along to carry lanterns on the procession, listen to the music and watch the morris dancing from 'Chip off the Old'. Light installations were created around the park by local artists and it was a very enjoyable event.
Refreshment and soup were served with the help of volunteers from the Multifaith Group at the cafe.
