On Saturday 15 December we launched the new permanent lights to the Bell Tower from 5.30pm to 7.30pm.  After some speeches from Chairman Tony Rowley and Reverend Andrew Spurr people saw all the colours that we can have on the Bell Tower now- green, red, blue, white, pink and purple. The majority of the time the colour will be white, but on special occasions, such as the Asparagus Festival, we can have a colour instead. Carols also accompanied the light show.

In front of the Bell Tower there was a beautiful installation of lanterns made by 130 school children from St Marys Primary, Evesham and Bengeworth Academy. People who made a lantern also added theirs to the work. This was designed by Julia Snowdin.

On the launch night there was other activities for people to do. There was 2 shadow puppetry shows by the amazing Drew Colby www.shadowgraphy.co.uk  (for 4 years up) 5.45pm and 6.45pm, make a lantern workshop with Julia Snowdin and people drew on a projection and drawing of The Bell Tower with UV pens and shone UV lights on them to see them. This was designed by Creative Solutions.

It was a night to remember despite the awful weather!
