Story: Friends of Burngreave Chapel & Cemetery

Sunday 1st September saw the first of the puppet workshops at the Burngreave Cemetery Chapel.

Lanterns and puppets were on show, to inspire us to create new fantastic things for the Apple Day on the 14th of October.

Local artist Patrick Amber was on hand to help people realise their ideas the crazier the better. Adults and children enjoyed themselves making new friends while creating lanterns from willow and tissue paper, ready to be lit by LEDs or torches.

Free workshops are running every Sunday 1-3pm, leading up to Apple Day, which starts at 11am on 14th October.

Materials are provided and there is no need to book, just come along and have a go.

The puppets can be made of whatever you like! Everybody is welcome although children will need help from their adults.

Apple Day will hold a plant and seed swap, apple-tasting, making juice, and apple-bobbing. You'll have the chance to taste local varieties, do the Fair-trade Treasure Hunt, see inside the mysterious and beautiful chapel building and end with a puppet and lantern show at dusk.
