Light Up Challenge

We’re asking you to make a Light Up Lantern out of junk, and join hundreds of others in your local community and around the world, to plant your lantern in a forgotten place. It might be a local park or derelict ground; it might be your garden or back court. What’s important is you plant it and share the moment when Spring arrives, with the promise of a flowering future.

So, anytime from Thursday 20th March, take a photo or video of your Light Up Lantern and your promise. Then post it at OR tweet it with the hashtag #TinForest.

There are also free Light Up gatherings in Springburn Park and Beardmore Park on Thursday 20th March, 6.45 – 8.00pm.

In the East End we’ll at Beardmore Park (West Muir St, East End, Glasgow, G31 5BU). You can arrive any time between 6.45 and 8.00pm.

The Springburn Park event (entrance via Broomfield Rd nr St Monance Street, Springburn, Glasgow G21) will also take place between 6.45 and 8.00pm. Visitors are invited to gather at The Winter Gardens for a light and sound installation and for The Waiting Room experience…
