KEAP has been involved with City of Lights since its inception 18 years ago. Each year it gets bigger and better with 2014 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.

Amanda Harris from KEAP is a member of the City of Lights board. Helen Reynolds is joint Project Manager and manages the schools and community participation.

The 2014 City of Lights festival will be held on Wednesday 19 November.
