Today is the second day of the Twinwood Festival which is a giant Swing, Jazz and Jive festival which has incorporated the formally separate Glen Miller Festival. This bank holiday weekend event draws some great musical acts from all over the world and best of all, there are still tickets available for the final day. Yes, a festival which is not completely sold out for the entire time. While there are no camping spots available, there are tickets available for Monday’s day of festivities at the Twinwood and Glen Miller Festival. Keep in mind though that the Twinwood Festival is held at an airfield so any sky lantern launches should be done with care and only with permission from the airfield.

While the festival is a fun atmosphere, there should be level of respect for the regulations so this festival can continue to be held besides the Twinwood airfield for years to come. The airplanes taking off and landing nearby adds to the ambiance of the festival atmosphere, all geared around the 40’s and 50’s. Period clothing is the norm, including many gentlemen in WWII uniforms and the music and dancing are both appropriate for the time period as well. While sky lanterns have been used for centuries, they have not been popular in the UK for all that long, only picking up in the past ten years or so. So while they can enhance any event, they may be seen as something foreign at the Twinwood Festival.

If you do choose to launch them at the Glen Miller Festival, again be sure to secure permission to launch them from the airfield’s authorities and perhaps dress them up in the style of the fourties or fifties. Writing war slogans on the side of the lanterns would truly add to the festivities. Seeing the war slogans of fifty years ago would energize the crowd and make it feel more like the 1940’s, without all the worries that that time period brought to the people of the UK. Floating lanterns are a tranquil media for any type of message and is viewable for miles. For the person who really wants to celebrate the 1940’s, resurrecting some of the adverts of the day would be a fun way to really do so.

For those looking to celebrate the music, a launch of Chinese Hanging Lanterns adorned with musical notes or drawings of the instruments would be a great way to celebrate. For this purpose, our wire free cylindrical lantern would be an excellent choice, big enough to even support an artist’s rendition of a Bass Violin.

Remember, all of’s sky lanterns are wire free, making us the most environmentally conscious sky lantern vendor in the UK. We were the first to develop a wire free design in our ECO lanterns and have since encorporated a second wire free design into our traditional sky lanterns and cylindrical lanterns as well.
