The Lantern Company have grown a reputation over the last 15 years for creating unusual work of an excellent artistic quality. We have a wealth of experience in producing and directing arts festivals, one-off site specific events, carnival parades and visual theatre. We also undertake sculptural commissions and create processional kinetic floats, costumes and large-scale puppets.
Our core artistic team have specialist skills and in-depth knowledge and experience in these fields, and we constantly seek new and inventive ways to animate and illuminate our work, frequently collaborating with artists and organisations from different disciplines, which lends a vitality to all our work.
At the heart of the company lies the desire to nurture and promote artistic excellence alongside a commitment to developing sustainable projects, which build skills and raise aspirations in community members, raising confidence, celebrating creativity and promoting social cohesion amongst participants and audiences alike.
We aim to make our events accessible to those who may not normally access visual or performing arts.
