Hello you Lovely People – despite a very inconvenient storm heading our way – we have been busy at Tide of Light HQ reorganising activities for tomorrow. Thankfully @WorthingTheatres have relocated us to the bigger Assembly Halls and there will be music and crafting and a giant lantern exhibition for all to enjoy. 2pm Start and a 7pm finish and in between that we have Dan Budd as Robbie Williams, Rock Choir, Northbrook City Met College plus the very famous Worthing Waggle. This will be a warm and snug afternoon inside away from the rain – we have crafting activities making lovely lanterns at 3pm and 5pm and all our giant lanterns will be on display. Come along for this free family festival and celebrate with everyone from the community who has been working hard on their lanterns. See you Saturday 2pm onwards at The Assembly Halls

Lots of Tide of Light prep happened over the weekend at Green Dreams! 

Held at Field Place in Worthing, Green Dreams Festival is a collaborative event led by local community groups, designed to showcase green space initiatives and local food producers. It’s also an event that the Tide of Light crafting team attend, and this weekend there were hats aplenty made for the lantern parade! 

 The beautiful creations were made using milk bottles and fruit shoot bottles collected by Activus Worthing. Activus is a soft play and children’s activity centre in Worthing, and is a Aquaterra site, a registered charity ‘committed to creating healthier, fitter and happier communities’. Worthing Town Crier Bob Smytherman was on hand to model a particularly fetching hat, and we were treated to a performance from Worthing’s Singing Chef too!

We had such a brilliant time at Green Dreams, and the hats created by little ones are bright, colourful, and will light up the night on 5th November; we can’t wait to see them do just that in little over a month!
