Head4Arts is hosting four family friendly Earth Hour events across the South East Wales Valleys region this year.  The events will include a mix of craft activities, storytelling and live music by starlight and lantern light – each with a local flavour.

Earth Hour is a WWF global campaign during which millions of people turn of their lights to raise awareness of climate change.  Earth Hour 2018 will take place between 8.30-9.30pm on Saturday 24th March 2018.

As Wales is celebrating the year of the sea in 2018, Head4Arts is focussing this year’s activities on the effects of climate change on our ocean environments. Each of the events will take place in the early evening and are designed to encourage families to take a lantern away to mark Earth Hour in their homes.

During the events, that are free to attend, families will have the opportunity to take part in craft activities such as lantern making and rock painting.  Entertainment will be provided by storytellers, including Louby Lou’s Interactive Storytelling in Blaenavon World Heritage Centre and Mike Church in Dowlais Community Centre.  Local group Abertillery Youth Drama And Musical Society will be performing at The Met, Abertillery and a lantern parade featuring giant sea creatures will take place in Penallta Park.

A special motion graphic film using artwork created by school children from across the region will be launched at the events.  The film will be created during a series of outreach sessions where children will work alongside professional artist and environment specialists to learn about the effects of increased water temperatures on sea creatures.

These “Under the Sea” themed events will be taking place on Saturday 24th March at the following venues:

The Met, Abertillery
5pm – 7pm

Dowlais Community Centre
5pm – 7pm
(Please note the change of venue from the one advertised in our flyer, as Dowlais Library is temporarily closed owing to problems following the recent bout of severe weather)

Blaenavon World Heritage Centre
5.30pm – 8pm

Park Penallta
7pm – 8.30pm
