Harvest Festival is a new free event at Buluk Park. Get stuck into a range of hands-on activities, including lantern-making, as well as pickling and preserving.
Soak up the atmosphere on Friday night and enjoy the sounds of folk band Velvet Archers, grab a bite to eat and get involved in lantern-making. The evening concludes with a burning of an incredible large-scale wooden sculpture which is set to mesmerise the crowd.
On Saturday Docklands Harvest features four workshop areas: try your hand at activities including lantern-making, pickling and preserving, pasta-making, gardening for balconies and more. Sample food from local traders, whilst enjoying music from local artists and headline act, Cooking on 3 Burners.
