New Mills is counting down the days now to the Light Up New Mills event, taking place this coming weekend all over the town.
‘Light up New Mills’ – Friday 25th to Sunday 27th September will be a weekend of creativity that everyone can take part in by lighting up their homes, shops, gardens and businesses. Light Up New Mills will bring the spirit of the Lantern Procession into our homes with an all-people-friendly, window-display-based walking trail for people to explore on foot, to see new places, or to see familiar places in a new way.
We’re sure you will all have lots of ideas on how to light up and decorate your windows, here’s some of ours: hang up your old willow and paper lanterns, turn your windows into shadow screens or works of art using coloured paper and paint. Hang up fairy lights on their own or in bottles and jars. Or just put a light in your window and you too can be part of Light Up New Mills! Then take a tour around the town and see your neighbourhood in a new creative light! Remember to share your photos using the hashtag #LightUpNewMills.
