Rusticus love to be outside as the light fades and the atmosphere shifts to that intriguing time between day and night. We have developed a range of Lantern Events which fit beautifully into the Autumn months as the leaves start to turn on the trees.
Rusticus Lantern Adventures take audiences on an atmospheric journey through your outdoor spaces, with silly games and spooky activities, and a whole host of characters who can’t wait to share with you what makes this time of day so special!
We have plenty of adventures for you to enjoy, including Forest Folk! An adventure at dusk by lantern-light as Fox and Rabbit take audiences on a journey into their beloved woodland where some magical characters await. Medieval Forest! An adventure into the forest of times past, as the people who make the wood their home, get to work whilst whispering stories of the mysterious spirit of the forest Journey at Dusk! A nature hunting adventure to find why some of our most iconic crepuscular creatures – magnificent moth, barmy bat and bashful barn owl, think that dusk is the best time of day!
Rusticus Lantern-Making Workshops are the perfect accompaniment to a Rusticus Lantern Adventure! Led by our medieval man of the woods, John the Forrester, families will work together to create large-size lanterns using traditional withy sculpture and tissue paper. Lanterns can be lit safely using LEDs, and then carried triumphantly throughout one of our Lantern Walk events!
Rusticus Lantern Trails Rusticus can also conceive and deliver Lantern Trails – full details of our trail events here!
