Cambridge Biomedical Campus Ltd - Early Evening Lantern Walk 2nd February 5-6pm- Free to attend
is the Old Irish name for a celtic/ pagan festival on and around 1st February, marking the turning point between winter and spring, when days are more obviously lighter, and when nature is quietly nurturing the seeds of new growth, though this may not yet be obvious to the human naked eye. This CBC Lantern Walk is an invitation to all to connect with the turning of the season, as well as connect with our own internal seasons of emotions, beliefs, hopes and wishes, with a view to taking some quiet reflection time among the raw beauty of nature, led by two mindfulness teachers and soul practitioners, John Nicholson and David Lynch."  More information here
