Hedgehog lantern parade and party!

As our Ipswich hedgehog project comes to an end, learn more about what we’ve achieved, chat to our hedgehog officer about continuing to support hedgehogs and help us celebrate Ipswich as a hedgehog friendly town!

Community groups, schools and individuals are invited to make their own hedgehog lantern before the event, or come along on the day to create a small tin or jar lantern with us!

Tips for making your own large willow lantern can be found here, and silhouette lantern, here. We are also running several drop in events to help us build large willow lanterns, details here.

Get crafty, browse our display boards for the achievements of our hedgehog work in Ipswich, enjoy nibbles and drinks, share your hedgehog stories and join us for our night lantern walk along the waterfront.

Free event, with 50p donation requested for an LED tea light for your lantern. Please book your place online.
