Erewash Museum is set to celebrate the shortest day of the year with a magical hour-long Winter Solstice event – with music, lantern displays and a shadow puppet show all on offer.

The free event will salute the solstice between 4pm and 5pm on Friday December 20 and is part of Erewash Borough Council’s annual Festival of Light programme, which also includes the Christmas Lights celebrations, Diwali and the Chinese New Year.

Cllr Mike Wallis, lead member for culture and leisure, said: “This enchanting event is always popular – lighting up the shortest day in a magical way. Join us for this special event.”
