Creative Lights Festival & Polar Parade

Rose Hill Junior Youth Club & Film Oxford held their Creative Lights Festival & Polar Parade at Rose Hill Community centre on Saturday 19th November.

So many people came to enjoy free creative activities, food and a huge lantern parade around Rose Hill!

Hundreds of people of all ages came along to take part in free creative activities including green screen, stop frame animation, lantern making, sounds and beats, and head dress making with Oxford City Farm.

There was also a visit from Oxford Bus Company & JACKFM’s Christmas Lights Bus, community stalls, free food and a huge lantern parade around Rose Hill!

Drummers from Rose Hill’s Nepalese community performed at the event, as well as Horns of Plenty who led the lantern procession.

Chilworth House Upper School came along with their amazing penguin lanterns and stars, and Name it Youth project from East Oxford also came with their young people to enjoy the day!

Amazing time yesterday when we took our name it youth project up to join Rose Hill youth club in their Lantern making and many other workshops and their parade around Rose Hill.

Thank you so much to the Rose Hill team for your hospitality and delivering such an amazing event, which was attended by so many bringing our communities together !
