Paraffinalia @ Campbell Park, Milton Keynes
This Saturday there's a great free event being held in Campbell Park, Milton Keynes. 'Paraffinalia' is a midwinter Fire Festival celebrating the darkest of days with fire spectacles, processional lanterns and pyrotechnic effects and live performances.
The night kicks off at 7pm, with some amazing walking characters in the Open Air Theatre area who will guide audiences through to the happenings beyond. There will be a parade of lanterns and illuminated structures which will join the celebrations from across the park. People will have the chance to interact with installations and performances, and there will be refreshments including hot food and drinks available. The main event is a 20 minute show, featuring fire performers, traditional re-enactment and live music from 'the Kettle Band'. There will be opportunities to take part in music workshops, led by musician Tim Hill from the fittingly named 'Tongues of Fire.'
This is a free event which is suitable for all ages. Parking on the Campbell Park Events Plateau is limited, otherwise parking at the centre:mk (John Lewis end) or Xscape is recommended.
