Sharrow Lantern Carnival gets funky with this years’ theme of Monster Mash!

Will your monster be dancing, DJ'in or out for a good party? What will be your creation for this years’ Sharrow Lantern Carnival?

The carnival takes place on Sunday 1st April and has become a well-established feature for the Sharrow community. This is its 15th year and we are expecting a lot of involvement from families, volunteers and artists.

The build up to the carnival involves a lot of behind the scenes activity. There are free workshops every weekend running from February onwards at The Old Junior School. You can also get involved with The Timebuilders team at St Mary’s church.

Luisa Golob, from Creative Action Network says, “It’s great fun thinking about the theme as we try and imagine what the final event would look like. We are excited to dance down the street with "Monster Mash" setting the scene for our dancing monsters of all manner of shapes and sizes.”

Starting from 7.30pm at Mount Pleasant Park on the Sunday 1st April, parading through Sharrow, the lantern procession ends with a celebration in Sheffield General Cemetery with music, food and entertainment.
