A sparkling night of lights and lanterns awaits Worthing residents and visitors, with the return of the ‘Jack on the Green’ spectacle this coming weekend.
The popular illumination event will be back for the second year running. The event, hosted by Worthing Borough Council and community arts charity Same Sky, will give attendees the opportunity to see Beach House Park in a whole new light.
Taking place on Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st October, the evening events will feature a lit trail around Beach House Park from 6pm to 8:30pm. Admission is free, with donations welcomed at the gate.
Spellbinding displays and live music will wow the crowds, with spectacular displays from East Beach Studio Artists and Creative Waves. Six local schools are involved in making some of the structures which will be on show.
Youngsters will benefit from the free craft workshops, which will be run by Same Sky and held in Palm Court Pavilion on both days from 2pm to 4pm.
Pauline Freestone, Events Officer at Worthing Borough Council, said: “We’re delighted to be running this event for the second year in partnership with Same Sky. Last year the event attracted over 2,000 visitors, plus another 200 schoolchildren to the daytime craft workshops – and this year’s event looks set to be bigger and better. Everything made in these workshops will form part of the trail at Beach House Park, so children can come along to spot their own creation in the evening!”
