KEAP has been involved with City of Lights since its inception 18 years ago. Each year it gets bigger and better with 2017 seeing 23 schools and community groups participate with their own lanterns and over a hundred musicians.The event sees a dazzling procession of withy and tissue lanterns float through the streets, handmade and carried by professional artists, Cornish school children and local community and youth groups.

Helen Reynolds from KEAP manages the schools and community participation.

The 2018 City of Lights festival will be held on Wednesday 21 November.
