The first 'Night, Light and Magic' event, opened by the Mayor of Bournemouth, will see young people, local school children and volunteers welcoming in Chinese New Year with a free lantern display from 6 -7.30pm.
Councillor Jane Kelly, Cabinet Member for Partnerships and Regeneration, Bournemouth Council, said: "The 'Night, Light and Magic' project is a great way to encourage creativity within the community and to create a vibrant art culture hub for Boscombe. It's great to see the support of so many members of the community towards the project and their desire to help transform, regenerate and truly light up Boscombe Chine Gardens."
Along with Chinese lanterns the celebrations will also be lit up by a large Chinese dragon, made by local volunteers and lead artist Sarah Butterworth, who has worked for the world renowned Eden project. Further highlights also include Chinese tea, fortune cookies and a Chinese fan and ribbon dance performed by pupils from Avonbourne School.
Annie Herridge from Vision Young People's Theatre Company, said: "Everyone is really excited to be taking part in the first 'Night, Light and Magic' event welcoming in Chinese New Year. It is our aim to create lots more community art events for Boscombe. We want to build upon the towns' strong artistic heritage and coastal beauty by creating events that give Boscombe the 'wow' factor it deserves."
Volunteers are also needed to help set up Boscombe Chine Gardens in preparation for the Chinese New Year celebrations. If you would like more information on how to get involved in the project please contact Annie Herridge from Vision Young People's Theatre Company: firstname.lastname@example.org.
