Shadow puppets will also be made during the event and will be followed by a show. Refreshments and cakes will be available to buy.

Project Officer, Tamsin Bent said: “It’s so great that we are now in our ninth year and there are even some families who’ve been entering every year since we began! It’s always so exciting to see the amazing pumpkin lanterns. Over the years we have had everything from the traditional Halloween design to flying saucers. I’m just glad that I don’t have to judge them as I don’t think I’d be able to choose.”
