Please join us on Friday and Saturday the 29th and 30th of October for the Birchfield Light Night. We will gather at 6:30pm on both nights at Grosvenor Road Studios, 16 Grosvenor Road – B20 3NP for a prompt 7pm start to the lantern procession that will include three other locations in Birchfield – The Westerings, Lyndon Close and The Secret Garden. This family-friendly event will finish around 8:30pm with toilet facilities available at Grosvenor Studios till 9pm.
Artists Scylla Magda and Sophie Handy from artist collective Crafting Community have been working on a series of light installations and projections that will reveal hidden pockets of beauty in Birchfield.
Sophie and Scylla have also been running a series of free craft workshops with residents to create lanterns for a community lantern parade. There will be further workshops in the days leading up to the Light Night starting Saturday the 23rd October at the Secret Garden – entrances of Grosvenor Avenue and Hutton Road.
