The Lantern Society in full swing

The Lantern Society

Trevor Moss & Hannah-Lou’s Lantern Society reads the hand stitched bunting, dappled in flickering candlelight and red glow. A thriving hubbub and forum, cauldron and big top. A throng of performers and listeners alike gathered from all over town and beyond jostle and meet. There’s no list for players to sign up, it’s not even first come first served, for at the Lantern Society fortune favours the brave.
